 Hmm? Neither of that seems to work here. The process list is not kept on top 
(that may be because the state flags are removed when a window is closed, you 
might have placed the reading in a wrong place, but I can't find where it's 
handled in the code). And it certainly doesn't have any grabs. Oh wait, "grab 
focus"? That doesn't exist a technical term AFAIK :). Assuming you're talking 
about explicitly activating the window, the logic should be
if isvisible then activate, raise else just plain show.
