I am working with and extention to AutoCAD Map 3D 2012 on Windows 32. When a dialog opens it sometimes immediately minimizes and must be restored via the Windows task bar. I have also noticed that the dynamic input command line is visible when the dialog dissapears and is present even if the dialog does not dissapear. I have shown this in the image below. This also occurs on Windows 7 64 bit, as well.
If I set the workstation to windows Basic Theme or turn off dynamic input, this does not occur. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
and if you turn off dynamic-input <F12>, does the issue persist?
Other question: it's my feeling that the dialog does not minimize but it falls into background (behind the AutoCAD application window). So try next time this happens not to reactivate it by the taskbar-click, but resize (not minimize) your AutoCAD window, I guess the dialog is open and you'll see it then.
If I'm right it's a problem I also saw quite often with my own forms (not modal ones) in combination with Win7 and AutoCAD. The way out is to manually develop code that this form stay in front of AutoCAD (or some settings of properties of how this form is controlled).

What you had me try is correct. This form is NOT minimizing, but falling out of focus and is behind the AutoCAD window. Can you offer me any ideas on where to look for the code that would keep it out front? If you turn Dynamic input off or switch to a Windows basic (Non-Aero) theme, the form stays out front.

Do you have the source code? Then let us see the part where
a) the form get's initialized
b) the form get's opened

Here is the form code:
fFind = new frmFind();
string strTableName = strTable + "Join";
fFind.lId = 0;
fFind.strTableJoinName = strTableName;
fFind.bShowLinkToNew = bLinkToNewRecord;
