Bug found in WT 3.19 through WT 3.21-dev 03 June 2008:

  1. Open a Wintest log and make sure Options, Windows, \"Included in the main window\" is selected.
  2. Open some other Windows applications like Notepad, HamCAP, and a command prompt window (doesn\'t matter)
  3. Switch back to Win-Test and force a Win-Test pop-up window to open by typing MSGS, [Alt-N], [Alt-G], or CLEARLOG (doesn\'t matter which)
  4. Press [Alt-Tab] (hold down [Alt]) to display the Windows \"active programs\" icon list, then let go of the [Alt] key while the Win-Test icon is highlighted.
  5. Bug: focus switches away from the pop-up window back to the Win-Test background window
  6. Press [Alt-Tab] again
  7. Bug: the Win-Test icon has now completely disappeared from the icon list. There\'s no easy way to get back to Win-Test using the keyboard now. You must use the mouse to click on the Win-Test pop-up window to get the focus back to where it belongs.

When Win-Test is displaying a pop-up window, any pop-up window, and you press [Alt-Tab], the focus should remain on that pop-up. And if you switch to another application then press [Alt-Tab] to switch back to Win-Test, the focus should return to that pop-up window, if any. The Win-Test icon should never disappear from the Windows active programs icon list while it is running.

Seems to be a Windows\'s feature: all dialogs having the \"TOOL\" property on (small titlebar) are making the same.

I\'ll investigate a bit for a possible workaround. If not we will have to live with that problem.

Attempt to fix this issue available in the next nightly build. Await deep testing and approval to close the task.
