[Bug 928442] [NEW] Compiz "Place Windows" plugin: Settings not loaded when Compiz is reloaded


Public bug reported:

Program's windows are placed at the correct viewports as they are
launched in a running Ubuntu (UNity) session. However, if "compiz
--replace &" (or unity --replace &) is ran in a terminal, all opened
programs' windows are moved to viewport 1,1 (x,y), in disregard of the
rules set at the "Place WIndows"plugin interface at CCSM.

The same obviously happens when a compiz session crashes and is

Moreoever, the windows are placed at coordinates 0,0 of view port 1,1:
Their titlebars are generally under (covered) by the global panel, so
that in order to move them with the mouse, it is necessary to click
anywhere over them while holding the left alt keyboard key. In those
coordinated, they are also partially covered by the Unity Launcher bar
if the use adjust Unity settings so that the Launcher Bar is "Always
Visible" (which is common for users with large monitors).

This bug was present in the Oneiric development cycle and still is
active now in PP cycle.

I am at your service if you need someone to perform further testing.
