Whenever any application quits, either by being manually terminated or terminating itself, the IDE brings itself to the foreground and grabs focus. This is understandably frustrating when one usually has it at the bottom of a stack of windows and it keeps jumping to the top.
Perhaps this is mishandling some sort of OS event or callback?

reporter, is this reproducible with a clean user dir? do you have any third party plugins installed?
No third party plugins, but emptying user dir resolved this issue.
