I have a friend using SuSE 8.0 with the default SusE KDE theme (I forget which
versin of KDE that is, 2.2.2? Or was it 3 something)). He has an strange
problem where, when he's working in a particular application, if the
application or user opens a new window, it will often come up underneath the
current window, instead of on top where it shoudl be. Examples:
1. Everybuddy (yes, gnome application) tries to give a warning about not being
conencted to the server. The warning appeared underneath the main everybuddy
window, so it wasn't seen for a long time.
2. User is reading email in Kmail and doulbe-clicks a message top open it in a
seperate window (Yeah, they should use the preview pane but they don't want
to and I can't make them change). THey happen to read with the Kmail window
maximized to full-screen. Most of the time when they double click the message
the new window opens underneath the main Kmail appliation window, and the
only way to bring it to the top (on top of the main Kmail window) is to get
it via the Kpanel. Anyway, this has never happend to me, it's got to be an
error in a setting somewhere; new windows should always appear on top.
Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?
