I assume you are using compiz, right?

Try to change the "focus stealing prevention":
1. Go to compiz settings
2. General settings
3. Focus & Raise behaviour
4. Focus stealing prevention: set it to low.

Focus stealing prevention didn't work for me. Going to employ one of the workarounds mentioned in duplicate #1158267
