    OK, so I've had this problem for years, certainly under SL 10.6.8, and recently I updated to Mavericks, and it's still there, so I figure I'll try to see if there is some kind of solution to this irritation.

    Basically, if I have an app minimized, say, Vuze (or whatever), and I quit an app I've been working on (say TextEdit), then immediately upon TextEdit quitting, Vuze rushes up from being minimized to popping up on my screen... uhm, I never asked for that f^%%&#*#ing window to pop up!!!

    Extremely irritating. Is there some way to have this behavior stop? Thanks!

    I'm guessing that the dock process is restarting. I wouldn't know how to fix it but hopefully that could help find a solution.

    Perhaps try going to terminal and typing "killall Dock".

    Edit: Perhaps try deleting ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist and restarting.
