X takes control of my windows! - 02/19/10 05:17 PM

if I am working in X and want to leave it for a moment and go and do something else, I click on my mail or browser and I start working. After about 5 seconds, X overrides what I am doing and puts its window to the front again. So I click on Mail to return to it, but it does it again - usually about 5 times before it FINALLY lets me do what I want to. Same with any other program I chose to use .... not just mail. What is with this software???? anyone else had the same INFURIATING problem .... and perhaps know how to fix it? Running a Macbook Pro with Snow Leopard.

We've been trying to figure out how to reproduce it. It appears to be somehow timing related which makes it difficult to reproduce.
