No, since it's not the active application.  It tries to set focus on 
itself but Windows has rules that don't allow that.

The agent just pops up when cvsnt requests the password from its 
password cache and there is no stored password - which is basically as 
you describe.  If you dont want it popping up just use cvs login or quit 
the agent.
