[Bug 495135] [NEW] Alt+right click window resize with compiz enabled does not work with "Enable integration into the desktop environment" on


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

Not long ago, the feature to resize windows with an alternative binding,
alt+right click, was added to the Gnome Desktop Environment. It is
superior to the older binding, alt+middle click, especially on laptops
who generally don't have a middle mouse button for the track pad.

However, with Compiz enabled reconfiguring window resizing still does
not work, if "Enable integration into the desktop environment" under
Preferences is on. Why is the integration setting overriding custom key

How to reproduce:
1. Start Compiz configuration manager.
2. Go to Resize window and change settings for Initiate Window Resize from the default Alt+middle click.
3. Try resizing with the new binding, notice how it doesn't work.
4. Go to Preferences, and disable "Enable integration into the desktop environment", notice how your new binding actually works.
