[Bug 473543] Re: Group Plugin and Animations


I've discovered the exact cause for the animation failure.

Steps to reproduce:

1.  Activate Animations plugin.
2.  Activate Group And Tab Windows plugin.
3.  Tab two windows together.
4.  Hover over the title bar of grouped windows and drag a Window away causing them to un-tab.
5.  Animations stop working.

** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: compiz
  Ubuntu 9.10
  This is just a visual thing, not a big deal.  But I noticed that if I
  enable Tab & Groups Window plugin in Compiz, Some animations fail.  For
- example fading and dodging.  Log off and log on are required to fix the
- animations.
+ example fading and dodging.  Complete restart of Compiz is required to
+ repair.
