Re: Gtk::window.present() doesn't always present

They can send a message to each other to present themselves to the user
when necessary.

Actually, they do popup but only after I click with the mouse, anywhere
on the screen.

wants to popup windows the user explicitly asked for with a mouse click,
to prevent stealing focus from other windows. Probably this is why there
exists a function present with time stamp...  I tried to kill the window
manager but this doesn't make any difference.

I guess you are using the metacity window manager, like most GNOME

I have CCed the metacity mailing list so they can give you some help with
this. (Resent with the correct address)
