Now that's a much more interesting problem.....

Speculating, I would say, the Window Manager is preventing Open windows 
from getting mouse focus.

Unless you say otherwise, I have to assume you are using the default 
Ubuntu Unity interface.   What happens then, when you log in, if you 
instead choose the Classic gnome interface?

Assuming your system works that way, try creating a new user and log in 
as that new user in Unity, and verity that a default Unity configuration 
does not trigger this bug.
