I much prefer the new behavior. I used to always have trouble typing
going into the wrong window when a new application started while I was
typing into another. No more sending the root password over IM.
Personally, I think apps should show above but never ever take focus.
I am pretty sure apps can say that their modal dialogs should show
above and get focus so they don't end up hidden.
The problem I have with that is that the popup dialogs are the
worst offenders. I'll be typing into a word processor, and a
long running background process pops up a dialog saying, "An
unexpected error has occurred. Delete the database?" just as
I'm about to type <TAB> <ENTER>. Bye-bye database!
