Public bug reported:

I'm testing onboard 0.97 in 2 different computers (one with oneiric:
0.97.0+tr756-0ppa~oneiric1, another one with precise alpha2:
0.97.0-0ubuntu1), both of them with auto-show when editing, show when
unlocking, show tooltips, always on top.

Most applications work fine with the new 'auto-show when editing' option, but I've found a few 'text applications' with wrong behaviour:
- If onboard is hidden, they don't unhide (the right bevaviour is unhide)
- If  onboard was automatically unhided by another application , they hide onboard (the right behaviour is do nothing). Please note that in case of onboard was unhidden by a 'manual' clicking on onboard's icon, those applications don't hide onboard (right behaviour)

I post all of wrong applications I've found in only one bug, if you
prefer I can file different bugs.

- opening the dash: this bug is different than #915250 , and this new bug is present even in unity-2d and with 'always on top' marked
- wxmaxima: cells and text boxes 
- qtoctave: the editor
- skype: the user/password window
- tuxpaint: the option to write text in a image (in some other applications as gimp or xournal this feature works fine)
- the right-click option to rename files in nautilus
- wine: tested with Adob Digital Editions
