could this have something to do with what 'Tweak UI' calls 'Stealing of

The registry value HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\ForegroundLockTimeout takes
care of that. Setting it to 0 means that programs are allow to steal

Setting it to a large value (default is 0x30d40) get's you a flashing
taskbar icon when a program tries to steal focus.
