Adding a Gnome Do bug task.

Bug 351333 might get fixed by this, too.

  Gnome Do does not come completely to front in KDE: please add default "prevent focus stealing workaround"

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gnome-do

When pressing Super-Space, Gnome Do gets displayed, but does not come to front completely.
It appears to be ordered below the window having currently focus.

E.g. when now having Chromium in front, about half the width of the screen, pressing Super-Space displays Gnome Do, but only half of the window is visible, the other half is hidden behind the Chromium window.
Gnome Do does have the keyboard focus though, also the mouse appears to be focused on it (in the sense of behaving different as long as Gnome Do is open).

Typing anything to launch and pressing Enter launches it. Pressing Escape hides the window again - that appears to be normal.

I do not have the KDE compositing effects enabled (using the nouveau driver).

Add a window rule via system settings ("Window Behavior", "Window Rules), similar to the ones provided by default ("(Default) Disable focus stealing prevention for Firefox").
 - Window class: "do do"
 - Window Extra: "Splash Screen"
 - Workarounds: "Focus stealing prevention": "Force": "None"

Such a rule should get shipped by KDE by default, just like for Firefox and the others.
