I'm using GNOME 3 Shell on Ubuntu Natty (11.04). When I start a new program with Alt-F2, I'd like focus to be on that window. Instead, focus is given not to the previous window which had focus nor to the program I just ran, but to a different window.

Anyone have ideas on how to help the window manager give focus to the just-run program?
