A TaskWindow is a regular view (almost) and these always get the input
focus when created. It would be possible to not set focus in case of a
TaskWindow but this would then be done for all TaskWindows opened.

This may not be desirable for TaskWindows opened using Ctrl-F12, as you
would most likely want to type in a *-command, and there doesn't seem to
be an easy way to distinguish between a TaskWindow being opened using
Ctrl-F12 and one being opened by a running task.

The only option therefore seems to be to create a global option that
controls whether a TaskWindow gets the input focus upon opening. It
would then be up to the user to decide what they prefer.

Would this be satisfactory?
