[Bug 412613] [NEW] Glitch changing workspaces in Expo mode


Public bug reported:

(note: I reported this bug upstream (http://forum.compiz-
fusion.org/showthread.php?p=72981) a few months ago, but received no

I have trouble changing workspaces in Expo mode when my system is being

Steps to reproduce:
1. Tax your system's resources (play some music, a video, etc.)
2. Enter Expo mode
3. Right click on a workspace other than the currently active one, to change to it

What should happen:
Your desktop should change to the workspace you selected

What actually happens:
Your desktop appears to zoom into the correct workspace, but remains on the active workspace.

Note: If you first left click on the workspace, and wait a second for it
to become selected, this workspace will be selected on right click.

As far as I can tell, this is what is happening:
When you right click on a work space, compiz does this:
1. Change the selected workspace to the one you clicked;
2. Leave expo mode, entering the selected work space.

However, when your system is under some strain (on my relatively weak system, this can be as little as listening to music and browsing the web at the same time), there is delay before the clicked workspace becomes selected. Thus, compiz moves on to step 2 before the selected workspace is actually changed.
Does this make sense?

Anyway, I use compiz on Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty with the "Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller" (integrated Intel graphics). If you need any clarification/extra information, let me know!
