Default metacity opening windows a layer below

Hi,

Using Lenny with the standard Gnome desktop UI. I've noticed that many of the
windows that I open end up being opened in a layer below existing windows. It
is not predictable, but sometimes metacity just decides to put the new window
at a layer below existing windows, and not just windows that I've selected as
to always be above all others.

I glanced in the gconf properties for metacity but I didn't see anything that
seemed relevant. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Mike

Check that "[ ] Always on top" property of the window is not enabled.

As I said, this is happening in interaction with windows where this property
is not set.

Ah, okay, I missed that information.

Can you reproduce that effect with a new and fresh created user? Maybe
your user profile got messed somehow.
