I guess what's happening here is that on hybrid Intel/Nvidia (Optimus) notebooks such as Gavin’s, fullscreen mode is actually borderless windowed mode, which is why he can't reproduce the issue.
I deleted the folder "C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation" before running each test.
Our PCs are i5/i7 desktops with dedicated Nvidia cards. The integrated Intel GPUs are disabled at the BIOS/UEFI level and don't show up in Windows system configuration.
Knowing that the preferences window always opens near the top left corner of the screen, it's actually possible to blindly grab it by the title bar and drag it around. However, that won't bring it to the foreground either. Only after Alt-Tabbing you can see that it actually moved.
Some more observations:

"Selected to Active" doesn't work either unless the active object is at location (0, 0, 0).

Added my own test file created in latest BuildBot build 51fa66b (win32 vs2013).
