Description: '
I have sometimes found myself with the screen flashing and bells ringing and not knowing why.  After an embarrassing minute I have found something like a LAFITEMAILWATCH login prompting me but buried under more recent windows.'
I therefore ''wish'' that ASKUSER (or RINGBELLS) cause the window to which it is trying to draw attention to be promoted to the top of the heap.'
