Forms 10g web.show_document on Windows Server 2003

I am using web.show_document within Forms 10g. When I run my application from Windows Server 2003 the document called from web.show_document goes into the taskbar and blinks at me instead of opening, clicking the blinking application it opens fine. It doesn't happen when running from Windows XP. Basically I don't believe Forms gives up focus correctly.

I have also tried...

CLIENT_HOST('cmd /C start /w "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" '|| '""' );

I need either... a) a way to trick forms into give up focus or b) to get the window to open and properly take focus.
