Right, that's the idea ;) …At least in my usage of LaTeX, I quite 
regularly run it through the paces so as to always have a very current 
view of the actual document. This is probably not particularly 
efficient, but it's awfully nice. That being the case, however, I get a 
new "results window" each time, which I have to get rid of in one of 
the standard ways, rather than cycling to it only in the odd case that 
there is an error.

Perhaps one solution would be to simply add one more "Standand output" 
choice -- a normal window that is not focussed.
