Here's another user having the same problem:


   So, on both my netbook and my work system I've updated to
   Ubuntu 9.04 as of a few days ago, and I have a few gripes
   about some of the changed packages. Actually, I think all of
   my gripes are about the current version of xfce:

    * Why do new windows always pop up underneath existing
      windows? I always end up having to look at my taskbar to
      see if something actually happened as a result of my
      action (like opening the settings manager) and then click
      on it there to make it visible. Apparently the devs have
      a hard time understanding the issue, too.


That last sentence has a link to the debian bug I linked to
