[Bug 785663] Re: compiz incorrect behaviour after restart


The problem is still present in current 12.04 pre-release (although the
stacking of windows after compiz crash/restart behaves differently).
When compiz restarts, window positions are either not remembered at all
(all windows end up in the top left corner of the first workspace) or
are shifted down by the title height. The widget layer behavior is worse
- the desklets are gone and I have to re-enable them in cairo-dock to
have them back. I will try to attach the apport log.

** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: compiz
  After compiz restart (eg. when compiz --replace or by killing blocked
  compiz process), windows are incorrectly placed - most often shifted
  down by height of the title bar, but gnome-terminal windows are placed
  to the top left corner. Assignment of windows to virtual desktops is not
  preserved as well.  There are also problems with cairo-dock's windows;
  after compiz restarts, the dock is stacked below other windows instead
  of above. I have to restart cairo-dock, but then the desklets are not
  anymore mapped to the widget layer and it is necessary to re-enter the
  window matching condition (type=Utility &class=Cairo-dock) in the widget
  plugin configuration to restore the order.
