|View activation problem when editor is maximized [message #646440]

I got a weird problem :
* One of my editor has a dedicated view somewhere on the workbench
* I implemented a IPartListener listening to the workbench page which acts as an "editor tracker" : each time this editor is activated, it looks for its dedicated view and shows it with VIEW_VISIBLE
It works pretty well : when the editor got the focus, the view is made visible, and does not have focus.
Now when I maximize the editor it does not work anymore :
java.lang.RuntimeException: WARNING: Prevented recursive attempt to activate part VIEW while still in the middle of activating part EDITOR
In order to avoid this error I placed the "page.showView" call in a Display.asyncExec. The problem is that whenever I activate the editor (when maximized), the view gets activated WITH focus. It makes the editor unusable as it looses focus immediately after being activated.
Is it a bug, is there a way to de-activate this (I think the VIEW_VISIBLE should not have this behaviour) ? Or is there a way to know that my editor is maximized so I could disable this behaviour when maximized ?
Thank you very much & merrry christmas
