PhpStorm brings its window in foreground


I'm using PhpStorm with Windows 7 and with the mouse configured to behave like xmouse, i. e. when the mouse hovers over a window it is immediately activated, though not in foreground. Of all my applications PhpStorm is the only one that doesn't support this properly: PhpStorm also puts itself unsolicited in foreground and covers other windows. How can I alter this PhpStorm exclusive behaviour?

Does it perhaps interrelate with the fact that PhpStorm's task bar entry frequently appears highlighted as if it has a notification, even if it is not used at all? See attached partially screenshot: GIMP's task bar entry is activated and used, while PhpStorm's appears highlighted like Skype with a new message.

Thanks for all of your support.
