[Bug 1536398] Re: Windows disappear without user input and aren't found again on any desks but process still running in background


Windows disappearing, but the process is still running has a notable
priority given now I have to unsafely kill the task, risking data loss
on the document by killing the process.

** Changed in: compiz (Ubuntu)
       Status: New => Triaged

** Description changed:

  Was working with a LibreOffice document and all of a sudden, window
  looked to be minimizing on it's own. However, it is not located on any
  of the three virtual desks, but is still running as a process. I can
  continue opening and closing new LO windows.
  Also, this is not reproducible in gnome-session-flashback (Metacity) so
  this is a compiz driven issue.
+ After restarting the application, it happened again, but this time I could go to another virtual disk and click on it, which would cause it to move to another virtual desk. Secondary clicking the window showed it was both minimized and maximized simultaneously, as it noted:
+ Unmaximize
+ Unminimize
