#1109 Some popup windows in InteliJ Idea (pure Java) do not have focus

future release


I am Java developer using the InteliJ Idea as an IDE. Since I can remember I have a problem with popup windows in Fluxbox. Some of them do not have focus after they are created. I am almost sure that it is a problem of Fluxbox, because in Unity or Gnome it works just fine.

For example :

Open Generate dialog (Alt + Insert)
Select Getters (Or any other)
And the newly created window do not have a focus on it!

Open commit dialog
While writing commit message, fix typo using Alt+Enter "Change to"
Then the dialogs do not have a focus on it and when the Enter is pressed new line is created in the text panel.

I've learned to live with it, but it is quiet annoying.

    Sounds like input driven focus stealing protection. Can you please attatch "xprop" for the window that has the focus and the window that should have the focus (their present focus state doesn't matter, only the informations about the two windows)
