Hello Don MacQueen. It was Yesterday when you wrote:

Does this happen totally at random, and is something you can't
reproduce when you want it to?

I've noticed a similar thing with most versions of AS I've ever used.
99% of the time moving from one window to another will raise the second
window and give it focus, however sometimes the window doesn't raise,
it just gets focus and I have to move off it and then back on before it
gets raised.

If this is a real bug, and not something to do with my installation,
it'll probably be something to do with the way AS won't immediately
raise a window if a new one pops up over part of it (like the Netscape download
windows. When one appears, it remains on the top even if your mouse
isn't over it - which is correct). Then again I've not looked at the AS
