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.
