    I believe I've spotted a brand new bug, or at least a noticeable change
    in window-handling behavior, after the latest security update to OS X
    10.3.3 (2004-04-05). Previously, if I was in one app and clicked on the
    icon of another app in the Dock, it would switch and bring all the open
    windows for the other app to the front. After applying this update,
    however, clicking on the icon in the Dock seems to bring forward only
    the frontmost window from that app. I see this most often in switching
    to the Finder, where I always have multiple windows open. I get only one
    of them, and not realizing why I don't see the rest (which are often
    covered by other visible non-Finder windows), I keep opening extra
    Finder windows. Has anyone else noticed this? Any way to make things
    behave the way I am accustomed to?

    I can't reproduce this.
    You can go to your other open application/Finder windows via the menu
    item "Windows".

    Maybe repairung privileges will help.

    It works fine for me--just as it did before the update.

    Mine still brings all. So it is not (solely) the 2004-04-05 update.

    It was my understanding that only the window clicked came to the front.

    I have DragThing, and it has an option to bring all windows of an app to
    the front when you click on one. I don't know if DragThing does some
    special work, or if it just sets some system option for you.

    And DragThing is still bringing all windows to the front, after the
    latest security update.

    So is it possible that you used some tool (TinkerTool, or similar) to
    set some option, and the security update has reset it, and because you
    do not have a utility like DragThing to reset it when it runs, you have
    lost the ability.

    I'm just guessing here, so don't put too much stock in my guesses.

    But if (as stated by the OP) the icon in the dock is clicked, then ALL
    windows come to the front.
