Bug Description

[Impact]
When copying or moving a large file, Nautilus opens a window with the progress of the operation. If the user were to pull a larger window forward, that dialog cannot be accessed through Alt+tab or the Unity bar. The user would have to move the obscuring window out of the way in order to pull the progress dialog forward.

[Test case]
1. Copy or move a large file. I recommend copying or moving to or from an SD card, USB key, or network device because they tend to be much slower than the local hard disk.
2. When the copy or move progress dialog appears, move a larger or maximized window over the dialog so it is obscured. Alternately, just click a different window to select it.
3. Click the Nautilus icon in the Unity bar.
4. The main nautilus windows should be focused
5. Clicking again the nautilus icon should trigger the spread and a scaled preview of the copy dialog window should be shown.

[Regression potential]
Please make sure that the focus behavior for the nautilus launcher icon works normally without a copy dialog window.

Nautilus version: 3.18.4.is.3.14.3-0ubuntu4
Ubuntu version: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
Linux kernel version: 4.4.0-21-generic
Architecture: x86_64

Thank you for your bug report, that's indeed an unity issue. Clicking on the launcher icon twice works though but it's a workaround

This was originally targeted against Xenial but for some reason updated packages were released only for Yakkety and Zesty.

In those releases there is no more separate copy/move dialog in Nautilus. This file manager uses now integrated indicator displaying progress of such operations.
