Description

18 years ago
Build: 2001-03-26 FizzillaCFM

Step to reproduce:
1) Open more than two windows (five windows should be enough)
2) Shuffle the stacking order of the windows
3) Minimize a couple of windows in the Dock
4) Close the frontmost window
5) Repeat a few times if necessary

Actual results:
Many times the window that get activated after one window is closed isn't the
next window in the stacking order. Another window further back or even from the
Dock pops to the front.

Expected results:
Expected the next window in the stacking order to become active when the
frontmost window is closed.

Henri: I take it from the description that this is specific to OS/X. Is 
that correct?

sounds like a possible dup of XP z-order bugs, ->danm

This doesn't happen to me with the Mac OS Classic version but happens with
Fizzilla. I'll check on Linux tomorrow.

The above Linux result was with fvwm.

Doesn't happens on Solaris (Sparc) with CDE either. (Build 2001041010)

XP z-order code is passive among similar windows; we just make note of whatever 
the OS told us to do. Hot potato -> pinkerton, who unlike me has a fizilla build.

i don't see windows changing zorder, though i do see windows being activated
that are in the dock. seems like we need a check when a window is activated to
handle if the window is collapsed.

Henri, do you still see window shuffling with the 5/30 build?

i just tested this, and IE and the finder do the same thing. if you open 3
windows, minimize the middle one while it's not frontmost, then close the front
window, the 'active' window is the one in the dock.

re-open if you continue to see window shuffling, but i think danm fixed all
those bugs recently.

Silence is consent, or something ;-] I take it that the behaviour matches 
pinkerton's description, and there aren't other oddities, Henri?
