Re: RFE: Never, ever steal focus.

How about making the gnome-panel give away its focus to the newly

which actions should give away the focus and which should not. I do not
know, how easy to implement it is, though.

That's pretty difficult for a launcher - how does the panel know that
the launcher is going to create a window vs which is not?  And how does
it know what window it is?  If you click on the firefox launcher, it
runs a shell script.  That script (may) eventually run an X
application, but it in itself isn't one.  What's the launcher telling
the wm in that case under your proposed model?

Space, is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly hugely
mindbogglingly big it is. I mean you may think it's a long way down the
road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space.
