[ BUILD # : d72f993fdc76 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.7 ]
When you run your application and the Output view is minimized it is opened but
not focused, so if you are debugging your application, or even editing, you
have to use shortcuts to editor (Ctrl + 0) or give focus to Output with mouse
and later click again at the editor since most of the time the cursor will
remain at the editor anyway but you can see the editor because the view is not
anymore minimized. It is a critical usability issue. It worked well before 7.0
but was broken sometime during 7.0 release time, probably after NetCAT 7.0
since I can't remember exactly it has started.
Caused by fix of bug 160767.
Integrated into 'main-golden'

Log: #202093 - [71cat] Output view does not receive focus when application is running
the problem with minimized output window has been fixed in issue #159356 so i'm not sure this bug fixes is really needed.
It seems that it is not the same bug and the fix is needed. (I could reproduce the bug with latest sources).
The problem was that when user ran their application, the output window appeared without focus. Then when the users pressed a key, a change could happen (cursor move, a letter typed), but the user was not able to see the change as it was hidden by the output window.
If the output window has focus, no changes behind the output window are possible.
Do you thing the fix is not correct, or it should be fixed somewhere else?
