[Bug 503411] [NEW] scale plugin launches with only one window


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz-plugins

If only one main window is open the compiz scale plugin is confusing
(and unneccessary). With a single window open and maximised the plugin
shrinks the window slightly and grays out (inactivates) the taskbars
(see screenshot). I noticed this behaviour in jaunty, and possibly
before. Mostly I thought it was annoying. However, a friend of mine was
using my computer and, not knowing about scale, thought that the
taskbars had crashed and didn't understand what was happening.

Since the purpose of the scale plugin is to enable choosing/viewing
multiple windows it is completely useless when only one window is
showing. I think it would be better if the plugin wasn't launched when
only one window is open.
