The problem is more fundamental than simply not supporting _NET_WM_USER_TIME
properly. oo is _ignoring_ the "kludgy" window manager global focus
preferences, at least in my case (WindowMaker WindowMaker-0.92.0-3.fc4, linux
FC4). Since I have the window manager trying to open oo in a different virtual
desktop to dodge its slow startup, the fact that it insists on grabbing the
focus means that my whole desktop gets yanked out from under me so I can watch
oo open up, plus whatever I was happily typing in my intended window goes
streaming instead right into the freshly opened document where it doesn't belong.
This was not a problem in oo v1.x, but is a defect new to v2.x. Applications
should never make a decision about such things as focus, that's the window
PS - if this issue is indeed a dupe, what's the master issue?
