This is strange for Mac OS X, but expected in the Solaris/Linux systems
I have used.  It is exceedingly irritating to me that the window in
which I am typing MUST be in front of all others:  there are many times
when I am typing in only a small fraction of that window and would be
happy to have most of it obscured by whatI am reading while typing.

I don't know if this is related to TeXShop's behavior or not.
