To reproduce this one use the attached test program.

Start the program. From the choice menu select an item. The choice menu and the parent window loose focus and the other window becomes the active window.

Fixed in Subversion repository.

This should work now. Please verify on your platform. I tested VC6.

On Mac OS X, everything works as expected. On which OS do you observe the faulty behaviour?

Yes, on OS X it works as expected. I've just verified that.

The problem is on Windows XP. I have currently v1_1_x_r5170 installed and use gcc.

Oh, *that* problem. This is a whacky MSWindows feature that has made us whacking our foreheads for years now. WIN32 seems to be unable to remember the stacking order of windows correctly and, when a popup window closes, pops a randomly chosen window of the same app to the front. This sucks and I do not know how to fix this.

Fixed in Subversion repository.

Please test this. I believe it is fixed now. At least on my XP machine, I could not mess the window stacking order up anymore.
