That works exactly as documented on my machine.  It may depend which mode
you are in and how you interpret `window'.  Try SDI mode.  In MDI mode the
window is the whole frame, not the sub-window.  I don't know how to bring
sub-windows to the front.

I should point out this is very unlikely to be fixed.  There will be no
further Windows-specific development by me unless patches are supplied.
