ok, before I post to the sawfish list I'll report what I've found here,
to check that it isn't a nautilus problem (as I can't reproduce it with
anything else).

if I have sawfish setup to "Raise windows when they are focused", then
nautilus property windows appear behind the main window which is open,
but in front of other applications.

so if I have a nautilus window on my home dir open, and bring up a
properties window on something, it automatically lowers below the
nautilus window, but above the others.

if I open properties on a desktop object it opens above all other
windows (including open nautilus windows).

if I change the sawfish setting back, things work fine, but I find
sawfish un-usable in this way, not being able to click on windows and
having them come to the front.

thanks for any feedback.  if this is definitely a sawfish issue let me
know and I'll take it up on the sawfish list.
