[Bug 707930] [NEW] virtualbox window suddenly moves to another virtual desktop


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

I've seen this behaviour only with the virtualbox window (the window
when the guest os runs) and most of the time when working with
Thunderbird on another virtual desktop

Test Case:
- Go to virtual desktop 1
- Launch a virtualbox VM
- Switch to another virtual desktop e.g 4
- Do something (I usually use thunderbird)

- Suddenly the Virtualbox window which was on desktop 1 appears on desktop 4.
