nautilus windows from newly opened usb drives don't appear in the menu, but are on the foreground

Bug Description

1. Open an application (e.g. rhythmbox) and make it full screen

NOTE: This application should be in the foreground and the title and menu should appear correctly on the top unity bar.

2. Connect a USB device that has drives associated with it.

NOTE: A new nautilus window will open for each associated drive (two in my case) and these will be in the foreground. However, the application in (1) will have the title and menu bar associated with it, meaning that pressing the close button will not close the nautilus window in the foreground, but the application from (1) in the background!

This has caught me out several times, where I have closed the wrong window due to the incorrect window menu/title being attached to the unity top bar.

Thank you for your bug report, does the nautilus dialog get the focus (does it get an arrow at the right of the launcher icon?)

This has been fixed with a recent update -- the nautilus window properly gets the focus.

Looks like it, though zorblek should confirm. Bug 502808 should also be made a dup of this bug as this bug contains the fix.

I run 11.10 and it still happens. How do I know if the fix was supposed to arrive at my doorstep?
