Bug Description

Binary package hint: banshee

Scenario: I am using Firefox and decide to open up Banshee to navigate my library to change tracks. I open it from the sound indicator and it pops up. I decide against it after all and decide to close it to get back to work. As both applications are maximized they both have the close button in the Unity panel. Banshee was brought forward but not actually focused so I end up closing firefox accidentally.

I have made a video demonstration for ease of comprehension.

Seems like an issue with appmenu-gtk package instead banshee to me.

No, this is a compiz issue. Focusing and raising windows are done by Compiz entirely. As far as I know, an application can only request for attention by setting some WM property. Then the window manager decides what to do with it.

This also happens if you
1) apply something to install at Synaptic,
2) change back to Firefox,
3) wait for Synaptic to end the download of the packages, in this moment it would steal the focus,
4) check that the menu is still from Firefox.

Video attached.

This also affects Rhythmbox, and, I might add, is a colossal pain.

This seems to have been fixed in Oneiric
