[Bug 879659] [NEW] windows minimizing animation plays in background


Public bug reported:

lets say when you minimize window on your desktop in ubuntu what
happends.. the window will minimize in the unity dock... but in Compiz
Manager u can add an animation to the minimizing effect ...for example
Magic Lamp, so your windows will minimize with nice Magic Lamp effect..
but when you open more windows on your desktop and you minimize a
window,you expect to see that Magic Lamp effect...but you DONT, because
the minimize effecet will play in behind all other windows and not in
foreground..so that minimizing effect should be played in foreground all
other windows for you to see the effect and not in background all other

PICTURE: the window "Documents" was in foreground when i clicked on
minimize.. but as you can see the minimizing is playing on the
background .. so if you have some maximized window it will play behind
them ..so you will actually not see that your window is minimizing...

i tried it on a different laptop (Virtual Machine) ..fresh install
Ubuntu 11.10 + newest updates (compiz also) and it does the same
