I'm not sure how much discussion, if any, there's been about this, but its been bothering me for a long time. When using Idea in Linux, Idea steals the window focus away from whatever else you're doing. Like when I go to start Idea up. It'll take a little while, so I'll usually hit the icon, then switch to email and type away. Well, at several points during that load up, focus will go to Idea, but my browser window will still be up. I have on more than one occasion introduced bugs into my code because what I was typing wound up in a code file instead of an email.
Besides the potential for bugs, its just really annoying. Really, really annoying. What makes it worse is that it happens multiple times during the load.
Same thing for builds or whatever else.
Is there any way to change that? I just assumed this would be fixed up over the past couple years, but its still there in 8.1. Arguably worse.
