Version: (using KDE KDE 3.2.0)
Installed from: Compiled From Sources
The focus stealing prevention description for "high" does not match the actual behaviour.
Set "Focus follows mouse" focus policy
Set Focus stealing prevention level to high.
Open some application, I use xterm.
Move the focus to the xterm
move the mouse to the corner of the screen
Press Alt-F2 to open the Run Command dialogue (loading any application eg from kicker works)
Focus is stolen
The description of High focus stealing prevention is "New windows get activated only if no window is currently active or if they belong to the currently active application..."
Expected behaviour. Focus stealing behaves as described in the help.
Oops, there was an off-by-one error. You should get the behaviour of 'High' after selecting 'Extreme', until a fixed version is available (too late for KDE3.2.1 I'm afraid).
Using this work around still has problems. If I set the focus stealing setting to extreme, then open the Configure Konqueror dialogue, that window does not get focus and appears behind the konqueror window. Perhaps that is a konqueror bug? Please advise, I'll open a new bug if so.
The Konqueror configure dialog is an independent application, so this is the expected behaviour. Other applications may have similar problems if they create configure dialogs the same way. I can try to find a solution, if possible.
I assume it is fixed after all those years...
