sure it must be annoying. Let us debug this, please tell us:

- simplest way to reproduce this bug:
   I just did 'sudo aptitude install eclipse', ran it from xterm. And
   clicked several things - all works fine.
   Does this problem occur when you click Help->About Eclipse SDK->OK ?
   If not, please give a simplest way to encouter this.

- sawfish version
- the two "Placement" methods used
- "Focus" configuration
- does it depend on sawfish theme?
- do you have any "Matched windows" configured?
- what are "Miscellaneous->Stacking" options

- linux distro ;)

anything else you think might be relevant.
