This might be due to issues with window ordering in NSWindow. I've been looking at this a bit for a while. Try commenting out the line ~1356 in
NSWindow.m? (the "if ([NSApp isActive])" in -orderFront:)

Yes, with line ~1356 commented out all the window are shown.

Well, I don't think the windows should be shown if the app is not active ... so I think this is a bug in the handling of application:openFile: by the gui (combined with focus problems in the backend making the app inactive when it should be active) ... it should make the app active before opening the file rather than assuming that the delegates :openFile: method is going to do it.

I've updated the code to do this. I've also fixed file opening in NSDocumentController based applications (so my hack to Ink.app is not needed) and made the application delete files opened with application:openTempFile: The resulting code seems to work nicely to open files when the app responsible is not active.
