Not sure if what you mean, but it really annoys me that in gnome 2.10,
when you open an app then, go back to a different app and keep using it
while waiting for the new one to load, as soon as the new one finishes
loading and displays, it steals the focus - very annoying. I heard a
rumour that this is fixed in 2.12
