Focus

[user starts Outlook, then minimizes it and starts working on something else during the protracted loading period]
[Outlook jumps to front]
[user minimizes Outlook, resumes working]
[Outlook jumps to front]
[user curses, minimizes Outlook]
[Outlook jumps to front]
[user gives up working to wait for Outlook to continue loading and stealing focus]
