After upgrading a module OpenERP every times goes to Messaging

I'm developing and testing my modules. Every time I make a change I need to update my module. Is it possible to make OpenERP 7 NOT to jump to Messaging every time I update my module? That is very annoying.

This is the same issue as in the "Initial screen" question which still has yet to be answered and the corresponding bug in Launchpad which has since vanished.

Update your module by relaunching the server with -u

Refresh with ctrl+r to stay on the same page.


Use ERPpeek in a separate terminal window and issue a client.upgrade command - See https://erppeek.readthedocs.org/en/latest/api.html#erppeek.Client.upgrade

you can apply this patch this changes in server it will open setting menu not messaging. when we "Apply Scheduled Upgrades" it will search for next TODO and if it will not get any TODO then it will search for menu which have not any parent and it will launch first from search result.
