ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
In OpenUI, when we open the F9 Popup window to send email from Siebel using the native Siebel email client, and then if we click on the paper click icon to attach some file manually and then close attachment popup applet (that pops-up by clicking on attach file icon), Siebel email client window gets closed and user is navigated back to Service request screen, instead of the parent F9 email popup window. Now, User has to click F9 again to send email. They lost all their changes (i.e. the drafted email).

Actual Behavior: System navigates to the parent Siebel Screen ( e.g. Service request screen)

Note: Click on 'OK' button brings focus back to the F9 email client window.
