not sure if this is a nautilus issue of sawfish.

Most likely it means the "transient for" hint isn't set on the
properties window.

A properties window isn't really tied to the main window it came from. It'
s a separate window that can stand alone. If you get another property window for the same item again, it will just bring that window to the front. That's probably why "transient for" bit isn't set.

But if there's no other way to make sure that a new window comes up in front, maybe we can mark even these "not really transient for any specific parent" windows transient for some particular window.

What do you think, Havoc?
