Ok, I think I have found out the steps to reproduce this
It isn't as often as I initally reported

The way I am reproducing is below

1. start playing music using the appindicator
2. ensure banshee is not open
3. using empathy type a message to someone
4. using the appindicator open banshee
5. banshee should open full screen
6. the menu on my pc still says Empathy Internet Messaging

Have attached screen shot hopefully to better explain the last 2 steps

Same for me. And it's not a problem of Banshee - I installed a patched Evolution indicator from Geoff Goehle's repository and it behaves the same way. The window doesn't get focus, you have to click on it.

It's a bit annoying if I want to just check status of e.g. Banshee and close it's window. If there's another application's window below it (e.g. a browser with lot's of tabs) and I click the 'close' button in the menu panel, I'd close the browser, not Banshee which is visible.
