    This is weird. Today, when ever I launch a program, it launches but doesn't get focus and launches behind existing windows and apps.

    Anyone ever encounter this? I remember this happening specifically to Firefox and Growl, but I thought it was fixed and IIRC, it was specific to Firefox. I've disabled Growl for Firefox anyways.

    Plus this happens with every app when launched, not just Firefox.

    This happens on my MacPro, but not my MacBook Pro, and though both are 10.6.4, the MacPro is a newer build, of course.

    never mind, it seems restarting fixed it. I really hope OS X isn't starting to require regular reboots..
