I don't know why the bugs I filed *earlier* are being marked as
duplicates of this bug -- especially considering that what I reported is
much more general than this. The problem is not restricted to dialogs.
New windows -- in general -- should not steal the focus. Not only can
this be a security issue when entering a password (notice how gksu
prevents any window from opening), but it's also inconsistant with the
"focus follows mouse" policy.
