	This happens occasionally with me.  I'll have evolution running
and I'll click on a link in an email and Mozilla will come up behind
evolution but with focus.  Clicking or mousing over (I run
focus-follows-mouse) will not raise the Mozilla window.  What I do clear
this up is to shade then unshade evolution and then focus/raising work
just fine.

Paradise; can it be all I heard it was?
I close my eyes and maybe I'm already there.
