[NSWorkspace/Leopard] Is it a bug or a feature?

  • In Leopard, when you open an application using NSWorkspace, the
    application appears in the back (for instance behind Finder windows).
    It did not in previous OS versions (from 10.0 to 10.4.10).

    Since this is clearly a regression, is there any hope to get this
    fixed? It's causing serious User Experience issues IMHO.

    Yes, the bug has already been filed and a while ago.

    Do you have Spaces enabled? I filed a bug a while back where window
    ordering is broken when spaces is enabled but works properly when
    spaces is off. For example, cycle windows in the finder doesn't work
    if spaces is enabled - it won't ever cycle back to the first window -
    focus gets stuck at the desktop. However cycle windows works as
    expected if you turn spaces off.

    regards,

    It's turned off. I'm not a Spaces or Exposé user.
