[Bug 785053] [NEW] unity-window-decorator moves wrong windows, steals focus, and creates invisible bogus windows


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

I have several issues with compiz under Ubuntu Classic, what I attribute
to be Unity bugs.

Often, the screen flickers for a short time, for instance, when the
software updater window appears. Then, grabbing a window to move it
actually often moves a different window. As a workaround, I run metacity
--replace, which reveals formerly (under compiz) invisible windows by
unity-window-decorator in the gnome-panel that I can then close.

To me, this whole Unity-patching of Compiz is a bit premature as these
issues are new in natty and haven't been in maverick. Tagging
