Description Pierre Fortin 2013-08-16 15:59:08 CEST
To reproduce:

Open a compose/reply window.
Focus on main CM window.
Click on Quick Search's Extended Information button to open the Information panel.

Closing the information panel via the CM-provided Close button works fine; but if closed via the window's close button, raising the previously opened compose window will not restore keyboard/mouse focus to the compose window -- it stays on the main window.

To restore proper focus, either kill CM and restart (nothing lost); or, re-open the Information panel and re-close it with the CM Close button.

Sometimes, only killing CM will help; not re-opening/closing Info panel.  Haven't found what triggers the difference between the 2 restore methods in original report.

I keep checking as I work...  had a couple of segfaults for which --debug and gdb haven't helped.  segfaults happened when closing the compose window as the very first action after restarting CM following the kill.
