Sometimes, when working in GIMP, if I open a new image file, the main editing window will lose focus or even pop up behind another window I have open. Then I try to click on the editing window to bring it forward again, but it stays behind the other window. I have to click on another window and then back on the GIMP window to get it to become the active window again.
This also happens sometimes when I open tool or filter dialog boxes in GIMP. The dialog box will come up behind other windows, and I have to go looking for it to bring it forward.
Any ideas on how to remedy this? This has been happening in past and current versions of GIMP on Windows XP and 7.
