[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#725350: chromium: Windows jump to front when opening new tabs

Package: chromium
Version: 29.0.1547.57-3+b1
Severity: minor

When opening a new tab Chromium's window automatically jumps to the
front/gets raised. This is annoying if you've got a list of links eg in
an email and want to open them all before leaving the first
email/document. This doesn't seem to be normal behaviour for most other
multi-tabbed applications eg Firefox/Iceweasel.

I've written a patch to fix this and posted it upstream. I hope Debian
maintainers will consider adding this patch if it goes ignored upstream.
