I do have this problem, too. Ubuntu 10.04, Compiz 0.8.4.

This problem is mentioned in several other bug reports about more specific cases (usually the Update Manager), see below.

But it's a general problem. Mind the security impact!

Synaptic steals focus when minimized or when behind other windows

Configuration Dialogs should not steal focus during updates

'Downloading package information' and 'building dependency tree' progress dialogs request focus too often

Dialogs of background applications pop up in the foreground

Child Windows [of Synaptic/update manager] should remain in the same desktop as the parent window
