  update-notifier steals focus

Status in “update-notifier” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Whenever update-notifier pops up about an update, it steals focus from
  whatever app is focused.

  It's annoying, 'cause it will interrupt your work, even though the
  window itself opens minimized and the results appears to be that the
  app lost focus without the notifier actually popping to the front.
