I have a similar problem with W95, but it occurs only maybe 1% of the time. A related (?) problem is that when I use the help window. If I click on the help window at all and then go back to Mathematica the window focus does not stay in the NB, even though when I click on the NB window, the cursor is where I put it. In order to continue, I have to click on the window again - very irritating.
