  Banshee window isn't raised when clicking on it in the sound menu

Bug description:
  1) Start banshee.  Leave the window open
  2) Open another application e.g. gnome-terminal or firefox.
  3) Click on sound menu (volume icon in the top panel).  Click on banshee.

  Normally (when the banshee window is closed, but still playing), you'd
  see the banshee window appear.  As a new window, it would appear in
  front of the other application.

  But in this case, the Banshee window is already open.  Instead of
  being raised to the front, as I'd expect, the Unity sidebar pops up,
  with the Banshee icon jiggling about.

  I know very roughly why this happens.  The Banshee window _is_
  demanding attention.  But it's clearly doing the wrong thing.  There's
  no reason why the user should have to click on the jiggling banshee
  icon - they've already said that they want to see the Banshee window!

  I don't think Unity needs a new API for this.  I don't have this
  problem with the integration of Thunderbird and the Mail application
