When you "Restore" the minimized mailer window, no key strokes is taken in. We
need to do a mouse click somewhere inside and then the key strokes work.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Once you are in a Mail-News Window
2. Minimize it.
3. Now "Restore it" or bring it up - either use "Alt-Tab" thing or just click on
the minimized window and the window comes back on the screen.
4. Now, Do not click anywhere in the window - but keep the window in focus and
type any keys - none of the key combinations (Alt+F) works :(
5. If some message that you were seeing is still highlighted, up-arrow/down
arrow keys also do not work


Actual Results:  
No longer possible to just use keyboard. We gotto do a mouse click before i can
proceed with the key combinations.

Expected Results:  
When it is brought in focus, the keys should be working.

Please let me know if you need more info.

There is some complicated steps to reproduce. Will investigate and re-open this
bug. Until then, marking it closed.
