Lost Focus

Ok, this lost focus issue is really annoying.

You surely cant ship IDEA 4.5 with this problem.
It prevents IDEA from being used without the mouse.
Its annoying. Very annoying.

I have to click outside of IDEA almost every minute in order to get the cursor/focus back inside the editor.

In case it isnt logged, I'll open up a tracker for it.

I'm seeing another focus issue which makes IDEA difficult to work with.

I have IDEA configured with the run window as a floating frame on a 2nd
monitor.

When I have a build error I get focus switching continuous between the
main IDEA window and the run window causing a flashing sensation.

If I switch away to another app IDEA grabs the focus back. In a
previous build it would stop flashing, in 2226 it doesn't. Switching
away to another app subsequent times IDEA does not grab the focus - the
flashing continues.

The only way I could find to stop the flashing was to close the build
errors window.

I've seen this 2 or 3 times since yesterday. Several times before that
with other builds in the 2000's.

Regards,

Matt
