mumble (7)

When i am playing borderlands 2 and sometimes diablo 2, if someone joins mumble it minimizes the game window.
any suggestions on what may cause it?

    We had someone on IRC with the same issue recently. He fixed it by disabling all notification balloons in Configure -> Settings -> Messages.

    Apparently, something in the notification code is triggering the game to be minimized.

    I'm not sure yet what's causing this, but the above seems to be the workaround. Perhaps you're clicking where the notification is about to appear? Are you running in windowed mode?

    Disabling notifications looks like it worked. I was playing in full screen mode, not windowed mode when it was happening. thanks.

    Which OS (version) are you using? What kind of desktop?
    Any custom balloons, or drivers that maybe modify them?

    Do you have other (fullscreen) games it works with?
    Additional ones the issue occurs?
    (/Is it with every one?)

    the error occurs in diablo 3 as well but not in world of warcraft.
