[Bug 1038785] [NEW] Inconsistent behaviour calling windows focus on another workspace


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS;
Compiz: 1:;

Clicking on an open App on the launcher, focus should be gained on the
app, and if the app is on another workspace, workspace should switch

What happens instead is that, at random, the app window is moved to the
current workspace, or another, at random positions, sometimes off-screen
(check screenshot).

I can reproduce it this way:
- Switch to a second workspace.
- Open Empathy.
- Super+ctrl+arrow to put the window to the right
- Switch to the first workspace
- Click on the Empathy icon
- Repeat if works ok.

I guess the problem is related to the way Compiz's Grid plugin resizes
the Empathy window; the workspace seems to lose track of its position.

Tell me if you need something more.
