Issue Report: Steam notifications stealing/breaking text focus.
While typing something into Konversation (my IRC client), if a Steam notification appears (eg. friend is playing game-a) it steals the text focus and puts it onto the Steam window. Basically it stops keyboard presses being entered into Konversation and starts keyboard presses being entered into the Steam window, so if a game is highlighted in the Library section of Steam and hit enter when this occurs it would launch the game in Steam instead of sending an IRC message in Konversation. The only way to restore focus after that is to focus on some other window and then refocus on the Konversation's window.
A similar bug happens when chatting with a friend in Steam's chat windows. I'm typing in a Steam chat window, a notification appears, and then I lose text focus in the Steam chat window. The way this differs from the first bug however is that the focus is only lost when the notification is ending (sliding back down off-screen) whereas with Konversation it is the moment the notification appears.
I've tested to see if this happens in other situations, such as while typing a google search or typing in gedit. It does not occur in these situations.
I hope I've described the bug clearly.
