Yeah, that's a known misfeature.  You can ALT-TAB back to it as well though (you
should be able to, can you?).  I think we can leave that one for the next
release, unless people think it will be a major problem.  I don't think there's
an easy fix for it.

I think I agree with you.  Rob, is this expected behavior?
