Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

I'm using Nautilus 2.28.1 on Ubuntu Karmic. When I attach my external USB drive, Nautilus automatically opens up a window displaying its contents. The problem is that the window opens in the foreground but doesn't have focus. I mostly use the keyboard, so when I don't want the window I automatically hit alt-f4, but instead of closing the new window it closes whatever window I was working in before. This happens frequently and is really annoying. I would be fine if the window opened in the background without focus so it didn't get in the way or in the foreground with focus so that it could be easily closed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
