When we first ran SDL with 10.2, there was this problem with the
keyboard focus not being given to the window if the app was run from
the command line (putting it inside a .app bundle worked fine,
however). This seems like the same problem, though I don't recall the
window starting up inactive. Can the window be activated by clicking on
Anyways, the fix was to hack the process manager to force the
application into the foreground, and this was added to SDLMain.m. Look
for "CPS" in that file to see if you have the new version. If not,
you'll want to grab the new one from CVS.
If your app is CFM/Carbon this is probably a related issue that would
have to be addressed in the Carbon port.
