Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

The "Show Rhythmbox" in the application indicator should open the Rhythmbox window (it it's closed), bring it to forefront and give it the focus. However, sometimes appears below the currently focused window and without focus.

Ubuntu release: Ubuntu lucid (development branch) 10.04 (up to date)
Package: rhythmbox
Package version: 0.12.8-0ubuntu1

Steps to reproduce:

1) Open two nautilus windows
2) Open Rhythmbox, it appears on top and focused
3) Close Rhtyhmbox window
4) Focus on one of the nautilus windows
5) Click on "Show Rhythmbox" on the application indicator

Expected behavior:

6) Rhythmbox should appear on top of both windows and focused.

Actual behavior:

7) Rhythmbox appears below the currently focused nautilus windows and unfocused.

I realize that focus issues are tricky, e.g. focus stealing issues get on my nerves, but in this case I believe Rhythmbox should appear on top and focused, as it was invoked directly by the user and no other window got focus after this invokation. This issue is more apparent when the currently focused window is maximized, as Rhythmbox will be completely hidden behind it and only clue about its location would be its pulsating button in the task bar.

Same here.
Seems to just happen, cannot duplicate.
The position of the window or state when closed does not to seem to matter as it happens randomly.
