Another Mac OS X user reported a solution for this weird problem.

"Apparently to get window focus the executable has to be bundled inside
an application bundle, which is just a bunch of directories.  So once
I put the eric3 shell script into an application bundle, it ran fine
and gained the window focus."

Hope this works for you as well
