Windows 7 JavaScript issue window.focus()

Hi
I am using Windows 7 and IE8 in my application. I am opening a new pop window using window.open(). After submit, my request will reload the same opup. While reloading the page is hiding behind the parent window. I have tried using window.focus() to bring the popup front, its not working. This problem occurs only if i use Win 7 and IE8.
Is this issue specif to Win 7? Is there any soln for this issue?

I have the same issue - window.focus() does not work for me in IE8 in Windows7, but works fine in XP with the same exact version of IE8. Also works fine in mozilla & sarafi - have you had any update on this, or anyone else have updates?
