Summary: Yast YOU grabs focus when minimized.
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Final
Platform: PC
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: YaST2
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: robin.listas@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Situation (gnome, suse 10.2):

I fire up Yast, then YOU, then I minimize both so that I can continue working
somewhere else (instead of waiting for a minute or two while YOU prepares).
Suddenly, YOU pops up, before finishing loading catalogs. I minimize it, and a
few seconds later it pops up agin. I minimize, and again it pops up, three or
four times.

Can't YOU be told to behave and repect the minimized status?

I'm told that sending you to another workspace doesn't help, it grabs focus.
Other apps do this as well, like OOo, but YOU in openSUSE 10.1 was well behaved
in this respect.

I consider a main window grabbing focus when the user has another app in focus
is bad manners, and can cause damaging errors, as Yast/YOU runs as root and can
get keypresses that were intented to the other app the user was working at.
