This doesn't always happen.  But if I run the IDE long enough it does happen.  I think it has to do with a modal window that obviously does need to stay on top, but that property of the modal window some how gets set on the IDE.  I haven't been able to figure out which modal is the cause.  But to give you a hint, I have only been doing Android development on Windows 8 64-bit.

I can only guess that it's the same window type hint issue we have
on OSX. CCing Carlos because he has a windows setup.
