[Bug 985865] [NEW] fullscreen windows cover focused ones


Public bug reported:

window that was focused previously is also fullscreen (window B). You

dialog) doesn't, same as Ctrl-P (preferences dialog) in SMPlayer.

Happens in: 12.04 (haven't tried in earlier versions)
Currently installed version of compiz: 1:
