That strikes me as quite an odd complaint, really.  I have no idea what you're 
talking about.  For example, I just started OO while swirling my mouse around 
in circles, and the mouse pointer never wavered.  I repeated the experiment, 
making sure to keep some other window in focus until OO started.  Part of my 
view was obscured by the splash screen, but no focus grabbing took place 
during startup.  It did grab the focus once fully started.

I believe you are seeing the behavior you just reported, but I definitely am 
not.  That begs the question of what is different between our respective 
configurations.  Maybe you can tweak the behavior you're seeing away, or 
maybe you're looking at some obscure bug.

I have a wheel mouse on /dev/psaux, i845 video, a generic monitor, a standard 
PS/2 keyboard.  Sid, up to date as of a couple days ago, with whatever the 
latest available KDE and X are.  Kernel 2.4.26.  I can't think of any other 
factors right off that might have an influence.

Anyway, I'll be surprised if your own setup is similarly vanilla.  I'm halfway 
expecting you have a USB mouse or third-party, closed-source video drivers or 
something along those lines.  Do you?
