Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: metacity

Whenever a new window pops up on Dapper, metacity assigns the focus to
it. This is bad behaviour. While Dapper solved the problem for some
password entries, it remains that whenever typing in a terminal or text
editor, one never knows if/when a popup will appear and where the text
will end up. For example, I could by typing my ssh password in a
terminal and a browser window pops up -- next thing I know, I just hit
return and submitted my password to some random site.

** Affects: metacity (Ubuntu)
