There was one controversial patch

some bearing on this.  This is just a hunch, but could you apply the
reversed patch and see if the problem persists?
Applying that patch fixed the problem. I'm much happier now - thanks!

My preceding email to Jon was not sent to this list, but the patch in
question was the _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW hack discussed in the "raise-frame
doesn't work in Fedora Core 4" thread on emacs-devel.  Apparently, the
hack has bad side-effects.

It is not a hack, it is following a Freedesktop specification. We have to revisit the whole specification after the release and probably add a lot more of these _NET_* settings. I'd say it is a bug in metacity (there are plenty already ...), but I've changed that bit in Emacs so we only send _NET_ACTIVATE_WINDOW on explicit raise-frame calls.

Jonathan, can you test a newer CVS? Can you also check if raise-frame works on your old copy (i.e. the one that didn't hang metacity) of Emacs and the newer one?
