[Bug 1102024] [NEW] Restoring a maximized Gnome Terminal window with keybinding fails to restore the original geometry


Public bug reported:

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Gnome Terminal
2. Maximize the window with the maximize keybinding (Ctrl+Super+Up)
3. Immidiately restore the window with the restore window keybinding (Ctrl+Super+Down)

What happens:
- Window is unmaximized but it still fills the entire desktop

What should happen:
- Window returns to the exact size it had before maximation.

Testing this with Metacity and Mutter shows that this is compiz related
(no problems there). It seems that Compiz properly restores the window
but gnome-terminal immediately resizes the window back to it's maximized
size. Gnome-terminal seems to react to focus in/out events by
recalculating its size. When compiz restores the window, GTK apparently
gives terminal the old size instead of the new one (maybe a syncing
issue between compiz/X/gtk?)

Also present in the r3569 of compiz trunk.
