Summary0004173: a3 startup window "set_keep_above()"
DescriptionI would prefer that the startup screen does not always stay on top of other windows. There have been several occasions when after launching ardour, I will open nautilus to manage folders and have to move the startup window out of the way.

I realize that others may prefer the current setting, in which case, it's an easy modification to suit my personal preference.
TagsNo tags attached.

+1 for the identical reasons: Ardour can take a while to load a large session, and my laptop screen gets eaten by the Ardour splash screen in the meantime. maybe an GSettings/GConf/config option, if not in Preferences?

keep-above should only apply to other windows from the same window class and client. what window managers are you using?

GNOME 2/Metacity 2.30.3

note that with SVN 11255, not only the splash screen, but the "wizard" dialogs, etc. also are always on top. not until the session is loaded is a window not blocking other app windows.
