After Effects (still) comes to the front when a render completes

This was a problem a few releases ago; I'm not sure if it was resolved and now it's back, or I just never noticed it for a while:

When an AE render completes (a final render, not a preview) AE always jumps to the front of my app windows. For example:

  1. Set a render going
  2. Go to Chrome to type an email
  3. AE's render completes
  4. AE, very rudely, jumps to the front of all my windows/apps, interrupting whatever I'm doing

It's rather annoying! AE should just politely play the 'render complete' chime, and stay in its place.

It also happens when AE does an auto-save (eg. AE is in the background, I'm using PPro, and suddenly AE jumps to the front because it's doing an auto-save).
