Stealing focus

When adding new TV root folders\shows or scraping it keeps stealing focus from my active window (games\browsers\typing\etc.) and been a real pain for many versions.

Will add to the To Do List for investigation.

On my system, while I see the status bar flashing MC, it doesn't steal focus.

What OS are you on?

Windows 7 64bit. Clicking away is okay, but try typing...
Sorry, i forgot to mention, this is especially relevant when running "Add folder from Roots" with 300 shows!

Interesting, don't think I've ever found myself typing while that's happening. Usually only using the mouse (of I wait till MC is finished).

I will seriously look into this, since I have an idea where this is occurring.

Did you ever get the chance to peak under the hood ?

Argh, keep forgetting about this one. Plus real-life work has been stealing my time away from Media Companion.

Will try this weekend to find the culprit.

Damn, that was easier than I thought. Though I do want to make the taskbar icon flash when it's finished to let the user know it's finished. Will look into that a bit later.
