[Bug 850458] Re: Minimizing windows in Oneiric cause invisible windows


I can confirm this. What is not emphasized in the bug description is
that the "invisible window" blocks any mouse clicks to the portion of
the screen it covers. This is extremely annoying, as every time you
minimize a window to get at whatever's behind it you become unable to
interact with the windows you were trying to reveal.

>From experimenting, it seems that mouse clicks to the region where the
now-minimized window was do not result in any mouse clicks being sent to
the minimized window's application. However, such mouse clicks *do* get
processed by the window decoration. For example, it is possible to
minimize a window, then click on the space where the window's maximize
button was, then un-minimize the window, and it will now be maximized.

When I attempted to minimize Thunderbird and then hit its now-invisible
X button to close the window, compiz crashed.
