[Bug 1090379] [NEW] Keyboard shortcuts does not work when last window is closed because Desktop does not get focus automatically.


Public bug reported:

When I close the last active window the desktop does not get focus automatically, this prevent the keyboard shortcuts to work because apparently the last window I close or minimize is still in focus according to the title bar, which still says the title of the window that has been closed/minimized.
For a proper example if I have google-chrome open and I am working with terminal the title bar says "Terminal", when I close or minimize the terminal window it is supposed to automatically focus the next window on desktop stack that is google-chrome but this is not the case, title bar still remains the same "Terminal" until I manually click on the google-chrome window.
Same happens when there is no more window left on the desktop, and after closing the last window it does not capture the keys. Any keyboard shortcuts does not works at all  except "Super", "Super+other_keys" and "Alt" (for HUD). I cannot use "Ctrl+alt+T", "Alt+f2", F12 (for Guake terminal) or any other key combination, for getting the desktop back to the focus either I have to press "Super" or "Alt" key or bring up the dash from launcher and then close.
So far the problem appears to be the "Window Focusing" which is not carried out properly but I am not sure !
