Hi all,

I have a fairly strange issue with my terminal in Leopard 10.5.8

- Upon opening terminal, it is active and in-front
- When clicking terminal (anywhere) it gets pushed to the background
- When trying to click terminal now, the mouse does not even recognise a terminal window, it will just click the desktop behind the window (drag box, right click etc)
- I can bring the terminal window active again with alt-tab and type in to it

Can anyone help me fix this? I cannot find *anything* online about it :(
