When I press Command-Tab I'm able to switch the application, but only on the menu bar, the application does not come to the front. Is there a way to get the application I've switched to to come to the front when I choose it with Command-Tab

    This is a problem I've had with Leopard. It hasnt happened too often, but for some applications when I use cmd-tab to switch between them, sometimes one of them will not be brought to the front, even though it is brought into focus.

    Same here. Cmd-tab does not work properly. Even clicking on the application icon in the dock will not bring it to the front. Only quitting and reopening the application brings things back to normal.

    I have this problem as well. Something is not right with the application switching in Leopard, it happens occasionally when click between applications as well. I can't remember exactly what happens with me, but it was something to the nature of the menu bar. I would cmd-tab / click between programs and the menu bar would stay stuck with the last used program. Really wierd.
