[Bug 765422] [NEW] apps started fullscreen in unity can never unfullscreen


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Binary package hint: unity

If you run an application under Unity that starts as fullscreen, you're
stuck in fullscreen mode forever. The app can call
gtk_window_unfullscreen() but it doesn't do any good -- unity on natty
beta ignores it.

I'm attaching a simple C GTK test program that demonstrates the problem.
Compile it as specified in the comment at the beginning, then run it
with no arguments. It starts up in fullscreen mode. When you click
"toggle fullscreen", it calls gtk_window_unfullscreen(). That works in
gnome 2 on lucid and gnome 3 on natty, as well as several other window
managers, but in unity the unfullscreen() does nothing.

You can also run the program with an argument of 0 if you want to test
it starting up in normal non-fullscreen mode, then toggling into
fullscreen, to see the difference in behavior.
