There is now window to layer it behind, because it is the only
window. Mt problem is not that it becomes the front most window of
my own app, but that it pops up in front of the windows of the
current (front) application while the window is begin created
while my app is running in the background.
I see this problem with many apps. At this moment I can't remember
which ones, but I'm 99% sure that some are Apple apps. I'd suggest
filing a bug, because it's very annoying that a backgrounded app
has the ability to cover foreground app windows with its own
windows, and the foreground app windows stay active, yet the new
front window shows up as inactive. That's totally wrong. The Window
Manager should prevent that.
Yes, this is definitely a bug. The Window Manager (actually the
CoreGraphics window server) is supposed to layer a newly visible
window behind the active window of the active app, not in front. The
bug is actually not in the application that is showing the window,
but in the active application; somehow its active window is not being
properly recorded and passed to the window server.
If you, or David, can reliable reproduce this problem, please file
bugs and send me the bug numbers. We need repro cases to determine
why the active window isn't being properly recorded.
