Annoying focus bug in build 1171

Hi all,

On Windows 2000, the last few builds (at least) have had an irritating bug
with the input focus. When the input focus is in the editor window and you
bring up certain popup windows (noticed with Quick JavaDoc and Go To Class;
doesn't apply to Code Generation) then dismiss them again, the focus always
returns to a window other than the editor. This applies whether you use the
mouse or the keyboard to dismiss the popup. The focus should be returning
to the point it left from, so this is clearly a bug.

The popups that this seems to apply to are Quick JavaDoc (Ctrl+Q) and Go To
Class (CtrlN). The Generate popup (AltIns) behaves correctly, as do all of
the dialogs that I've tested.

The SCR for this is 29753 (although there are a few duplicates floating
around as well) and the URL is
http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=29753

Please vote for it if it bothers you too!

Cheers,
Vil.

I guess it was a Windows 2000-specific issue, then. It's just been marked as
fixed, anyway (thanks JetBrains!).
