It may be related to the the level of focus-protection in KWin settings. In
some cases, to prevent focus stealing, popups pop in background by default
(they still pop over there main window, if they are modal, but they do not
steal focus from another window).
That sounds reasonable. I have focus-stealing prevention set to Medium, with
policy set to Click to Focus. Neal, what are your settings?
