What is your value of `minibuffer-auto-raise'?  Maybe `yes-or-no-p'
should do `select-frame-set-input-focus' in your case.  What happens
usually when you ask a `yes-or-no-p' question in a non-minibuffer frame?

I'm afraid, most people here can't reproduce your problem.  We probably
have to invent some new option to handle it.  In any case, we'd have to
investigate the underlying problem.

Try to load the attached file and tell me which problems you see.
