I have no idea, the root of the problem described below, which still exists
in CVS Emacs but the default value for focus-follows-mouse appears to be
wrong (t) on MS Windows systems.  I don't believe there is an option that
will cause focus to follow a mouse on MS Windows systems.

Anyway, (setq focus-follows-mouse nil) appears to keep the problem described
below from happening and so far I've not noticed any bad side effects from
making it nil.

This occurs on all the MS systems I've tried: NT, W2K, XP & XP-pro
It's been happening on all versions of 21.3.50 since I started trying them
in Jul-04. 
I've never been in a position to compile Emacs myself until yesterday so was
hesitant to report problems with months old binaries off the net.  This
still occurred with CVS as of last night.

emacs -q
C-x 5 2   
Float the mouse over anything with popup help.  Toolbar buttons and the mode
line are good places.
The original frame grabs the foreground.  It doesn't have focus; your new
frame still does.  But your new frame is now hidden by an out-of-focus
