[Bug 1311788] [NEW] compiz lower window:<Alt>Button5 stops working


Public bug reported:

Since upgrading to 14.04, compiz Lower Window key binding as alt+button5
is no longer working completely. It used to nicely cycle through windows
but now if a window surfaces that is scrollable, the 'lower window'
command stops responding and the window content starts scrolling
vertically even though the alt key is still pressed. Clicking the window
and then triggering 'lower window' again causes it to temporarily start
working again until another scrollable window surfaces.

This is configured under ccsm General Options->Key Bindings->Lower

It worked previously in 13.10. I have since tried unity-reset and
reverting all compiz settings.

Other settings:

Click To Focus: off
Raise On Click: on
Auto-Raise: off
Focus Prevention Level: Low

I tested a different plugin "Opacity, Brightness and Saturation" with
the same key binding <Alt>Button5 and it does not demonstrate the same
behavior; I can tune any window opacity whether the window is scrollable
or not.

Setting the alternative Lower Window keyboard binding <Control>Down
works without the same interference.
