ShowMessage result hiding behind main form

I have a user complaining about one application I have, where on occasion, on certain machines, a certain call to ShowMessage will "not show up".  After he alt-tabs, it's hiding behind the main form.  As the showmessage call is in a BitBtn handler, which starts a lengthy serial process (8-10 seconds), I assumed that he was touching other things between pressing the button and the Showmessage, and that was hiding it, but I tried it on his machine, and that's not the case.  It just shows up in the background.  Other Showmessages are fine, just this one.

Any ideas?

Or perhaps you can use something like:

//-----------------------
with Application do
begin
  NormalizeTopMosts;
  MessageBox('This should be on top.', 'Look', [mbOK]);
  RestoreTopMosts;
end;
//-------------------------

alikoank & BedouinDN -

As it turns out, he had a special mouse driver installed which caused it to emulate a double-click there, which turning that off solved the problem; both answers were good; I gave the points to alikoank who was faster.
