IDEA stealing focus: fixed?

I'm running 7.0.3 on Ubuntu 8.04 (using Gnome and Java 1.6.0_05) and I
still have problems with IDEA stealing focus after compiles. I searched
the forums and JIRA for this issue and find that the problem was
declared to be resolved years ago.

Am I the only one still seeing this behavior? I've mostly learned to
live with it, but it is still annoying to be working on something, then
have IDEA finish and grab the focus 3 or 4 times in a row.

Odd... On SuSE Linux 10.0 running KDE 3.5.5 (and JVMs from 1.5 through the latest 1.6), I routinely see IDEA fail to acquire focus when I switch to it from another application (on a separate virutal desktop).

It's been going on since version 6 (when I started using IDEA) and is very common, on the other of one in four or three times I switch away and back.

I've never seen it steal focus, however.
