Use Fink's xorg package to bring X11 windows forward
Authored by: merlyn on Sep 09, '05 09:53:26AM

The X11 server (responsible for drawing on the screen) sees each window as a separate client thread, and so it has no idea which "windows" belong to an "application". Therefore, there can't be any coordinated window locating or mapping, except with the cooperation of the client app itself.

Unless they snuck in something on me when I wasn't looking.
