Hi Mike.  I cannot confirm it.  As long as I don't use Alt F4 to close
gaim, but instead minimize it, I can always give it focus at subsequent
launches.  I believe I found where that value is set, however.  Take a
look it .gaim/prefs.xml  Find the line that contains list_visible.  When
I changed its value from 1 to 0 and restarted gaim, I saw the behavior
you described.

Hope this helps!
