Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

Steps I have made:
1) Entered 'xpdf' in the search box
2) Clicked install on the XPDF list item in the result list (not from the XPDF details page)

Expected behaviour:
-Authentication dialog pops up and password entry is focused to be able to start typing your password as soon as possible
What happened?
-Authentication dialog popped up above software center, but unfocused, so I had to click on it to be able to enter my password

I couldn't confirm this bug in the following computers:
Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS 2.6.35-23-generic i686 with software-center v3.0.5

Ubuntu 10.10 2.6.32-26-generic x86_64 with software-center v2.0.7

Both of them show the expected behaviour.

But If I add and intermediate step:
Steps I have made:
1) Entered 'xpdf' in the search box
2) Change focus to another application (for example a terminal)
3) Maximize Software-Center Window and Click install on the XPDF list item in the result list (not from the XPDF details page)

It works fine in my Ubuntu 10.04 computer but not in my Ubuntu 10.10. So it seems to be a regression.
