Application not receiving event when clicked on taskbar

I have a .NET application (C#, WinForms) application running on Windows XP. If i minimize my application, and have several other windows minimized to the taskbar, and click on my application (in the taskbar) then often i see the taskbar "icon" blink but my application fails to "restore" its window. Any suggestions to what might cause this? Any hints on how to check if my application is not getting an event from the mouse-click.

UPDATE: Could anybody give an example of, how to output any incoming events to an application. Something that allows me to e.g. print the received events using Console.Writeline() to see, if my application gets an event when I click on the taskbar?

I venture to guess that your app will become in focus.
