Focus problem VB6 XP

Hi,
We have an app that has been written for us in VB6 (unfortunately I dont have access to the source). I feel that this may be an explorer thing rather than VB but I have posted here to see if anyone has seen this before.
Occasionally certain clients cannot affect the app by clicking it. If you click off the form (say the desktop) and then click back again it gets focus and away you go.
Is more of an annoyance, but has anybody got any ideas what would cause this?
Thanks in advance.

Is this happening at the beginning of your app???

Usually when the app has been open for a while and the user has been switching between.

I have reported back to the user and requested that he shout next time the problem occurrs. 2 months on and still no word from him so am closing this off. Thanks for the feedback, I will award the points as I suspect it is in relation to another app running, perhaps another vb app that we use!!?
Operator has not reported back any subsequent problems so impossible to test solution. I suspect that milindsm was on the right track here.
