Description Jonathan Pryor 2013-08-29 13:35:45 UTC
This bit me today; very annoying:

1. Start Xamarin Studio.
2. Hit File > Open...
3. File Open dialog appears.
4. Meanwhile, somehow, the Updater dialog "appears" BEHIND the Open dialog. I don't see this.
5. Within (3), navigate to a file, hit Open button.
6. Nothing happens.
7. Repeat (5) & (6). Fear for sanity.
8. Realize that the Updater dialog (4) was present, not visible.
9. Dismiss Updater dialog. Open dialog works normally.

What version of XS? I thought I fixed this a while back.

In my testing of this the updater window always waits for the Open dialog to be closed before appearing.

Yes, the updater dialog is only shown when the main window has focus.
