[Bug 1316651] [NEW] Compiz' Put plugin makes random mistakes in moving maximize windows between displays


Public bug reported:

When using the Put plugin in Compiz to send a window to the next dispaly
(the option is called "Put To Next Output"), sometimes Put fails as
follows: It moves the window to the next output (animated), then
suddenly the window jumps back to the prevoius display.

At least in my case, this only happens with Maximized windows.
Interestingly, repeating the same operation a couple of times (without
even resizing the window) will eventually lead to the expect behaviour.

Note that (as shown in the attached files), my two displays are not of
exactly the same size (23 inch versus 22 inch), but they both use the
same resolution. I doubt if that is the root cause (because of similar
resolution) but I still wanted to point it out.

I am not aware of any way to log the behaviour, but if provided
guidance, I would be willing to record such logs.
