[Bug 755842] [NEW] Non-maximized windows which sit on the border of a workspace move when called


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Binary package hint: unity

The bug works as follows:

1. Put a non-maximized window against the border of your workspace

2. Switch to the adjoining workspace

3. Select the window in Unity

Expected Behavior

   You are switched back to the workspace with the window

What actually happens

   You stay in the current workspace AND the window is shifted slightly into the current workspace
   Making it impossible to use without manually switching to the workspace and dragging the window back to where it was

Screenshoted instructions:

1) Put an application window hard against the side of your workspace without maximizing it

    (All workspaces: http://rc.id.au/f/images/2-window-move-bug.png)

2) Go to a different workspace which shares an edge with your application
    Top right workspace: http://rc.id.au/f/images/3-window-move-bug.png

3) Click on the application within the launcher, and the application will jump a little way into the next workspace

To show this more, I reset the windows to their original locations from
#1, went into the bottom left workspace and clicked on Gwibber again:

I hope that makes sense and explains the bug.
