Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: thunderbird

Thunderbird constantly steals focus, which is annoying for several reasons: 
1. it disrupts the current activity
2. when thunderbird is running in another desktop, it is difficult to understand what is happening.

Disruption windows (popups) include e.g. "Domain name mismatch", or
"failed to connect to server."

As I understand, such popups make sense if the user updates the mailbox
actively. However, they should be disabled when mailboxes are updated
automatically, since these problems do not require immediate attention.

System: Ubuntu 9.10
