Under X and with some window managers, Emacs' `raise-frame' seems to
fail. If your WM supports EWMH[1], you might be able to fix it with
something like the following:

(defadvice raise-frame (around wmctrl activate)
  (if (eq (window-system (ad-get-arg 0)) 'x)
      (x-send-client-message nil 0 (ad-get-arg 0)
                             "_NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW" 32 '(1))
    ad-do-it))

You might also want to `report-emacs-bug', as Emacs obviously doesn't do
as much as it should on its own.
