[Bug 789580] [NEW] Switcher window borders are not properly unmapped with (unity|gtk)-window-decorator


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

Steps to reproduce with default setup:
1. Log in.
2. Open a terminal from the menu, and move it away from the center of the screen where the switcher will appear. Make sure that it still has focus.
3. Hold down Alt-Tab to activate and show the switcher.
4. While the switcher is still visible move the mouse to a point right above the very bottom of the gray switcher window. Within a pixel or two of the bottom is sufficient.
5. Release Alt-Tab.
6. Click at the mouse position found in step 4. You will see that the desktop does not take focus, and the terminal window still has focus.  If you run xwininfo you can click at that location and you will see information about a window that you can't see, and that is definitely not the background nautilus window.

I have noticed that this happens with both the "Static Application
Switcher" and the "Application Switcher" compiz plugins, however it does
not happen with the other switcher plugins.
