Yes, it would appear that Apple decided to change the behavior of iTunes 11. Before, if iTunes was "maximized" (full screen) and you "minimized" as a toolbar, it would restore to a full window if you click what is traditionally known as the "maximize" button in Windows. Now, it no longer restores to a full screen view if you click the "maximize" button. Consequently it restores behind whatever window you have full screen. Stop using the iTunes toolbar and minimize instead to the taskbar like every other program and it will restore to a full window when you click on it. You won't be able to use the mini-player this way but until Apple decides it's broken, they won't fix it.

Thanks, now I atleast know that it's not a problem unique to me ... guess we'll have to wait and hope that Apple fixes this in the future. It really makes using the taskbar player a lot more uncomfortable, so much that I stopped using it by now.

Ive been having the same problem, with the addition that itunes doesnt maximize from the task bar either.
I keep the itunes launch icon in the quick launch menu beside the windows button and the only way I have found itunes will maximize is to press the launch icon again while itunes is already running.
I also never use the itunes Cloud so I turn off the 'iCloud downloads' column from the standard view (Library:Songs), but every time I close itunes and reopen it the icon is back messing up all my coulmns, any way to turn it off for good?

Just found this old solution and it worked for me! Woo-hoo!
Hope this helps you all too.
Nevermind. It works better, but it won't come to front of an active window. It will, however, come to the front of all inactive windows. Just not in front of the one I am working with currently.

Try this. Hover over the icon in the tray. When the miniture of the screen pops up move your mouse over the mini screen and right click. Click Maximize and it should come back.
Hope that helps!
