Summary0016130: Plackback: Spacebar causes focus to switch to MediaMonkey on track transitions
Description1 Initiate playback in MM
2 In notepad, start typing A <space> A <space> A <space>....
3 Track1 finishes playback and track 2 starts
--> Focus switches from Notepad to MediaMonkey

Note: I've seen this several times and it's not new to recent builds, but am only noting it now because I happened to have dbgview running when it happened and realized how to replicate it. The problem is caused by pressing the SPACEBAR while the Pop-Up is active; it probably causes focus to switch to MM because MM is 'listening' for the Play/Pause keyboard command (the problem doesn't occur when typing other characters).
Additional InformationPossibly related issue: pressing DELETE in another application caused the DELETE action to occur in MM!
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build2265

I'm able to replicate this relatively easily in 2263:
1 Run MM in a non-maximized window
2 Initiate playback of a few tracks
3 Maximize Notepad or Firefox so that it obscures MM
4 When MM nears the end of the playback track, type in Firefox or Notepad alternating between SPACEBAR and another character
--> As soon as the Popup appears, focus switches to MM5
