 I was able to repro this on the VM, but if I execute the merge 
 app from any console window (even with the same arguments), I 
 can't repro this, any chance of getting to see the source code 
 where the merge app is run?

+This is likely a Window manager issue, not a Windows.Forms issue;   I
+do not know exactly what the rules are for deciding when a window
+should go into the top or not, but some window managers keep things on
+the back to avoid interrupting the current work.
+It would be good to find out how the new window is launched, is that
+just a new Form created from the same application, or is this created
+by a new process?
