NB 3.5 build 200304012350, MDI
Linux RH 7.2, GNome
JDK 1.4.1_02

If I have already opened Options dialog and focus
on Main window (Options dialog is below Main
window) and I try to use menu Tools-Options, the
dialog is not displayed.

That's very old issue. The problem is in jdk/awt implementation. The
options settings window is not shown when you have it behind other
But I have one dirty workeround but for users very usefull:-) 

if(When the main windows is focused && 
      Options allready shown &&
      rectangle of main window extends rectangle of Options) {
         close options;
         open options;

Because Window System v1 will not be supported from now by our team, all old
winsys issues (now "core/window system v1" issues) are going to be closed as

Changes in API which emerged both from UI spec 
and problems with adjusting to the older API are described in the document
 It shows also recommends how the client code should be adjusted to the new
window system.

If you think this issue apply also to the new winsys then change the
subcomponent (to "core/window system") and REOPEN it.
