This issue appears probably only on CDE as with GNOME it was OK.

Reporter, please test with SwingSet2 demo which comes with JDK. Also please try
to test with JDK 1.5.x.
It may be general JDK issue on specific window manager, not NetBeans directly.
Any news, please? Current info isn't enough for us to identify or fix the issue.
Sorry for not answering earlier. I tried the SwingSet2 you recommended, but I
didn't encounter any window focus switches. I tried to find a way how to
reproduce it, but without any success.
It happened several more times to me, but I wasn't able to find the reason. I
was testing CVS module following the test specifications on
http://qa.netbeans.org/modules/test-specs-55.html, so you can try it if it
happens to you as well. I had opened NB only on half of my screen and Mozilla
fullscreened bellow it so I could follow the instructions without switching focus.
Nothing we can do on our side without more info and reproductible case, probably
OS window manager x JDK issue.
