[Bug 1593426] [NEW] Minimizing Google Chrome breaks window switching in MATE


Public bug reported:

After clicking the minimize button on a Google Chrome window, the next
un-minimized window does not get selected, and switching windows by
clicking on them completely fails to work in MATE. You can still use
Alt-Tab to switch windows, but clicking them does absolutely nothing.
This problem does not occur in Marco, and I haven't seen this problem on
any desktop other than MATE.

Distribution: Ubuntu MATE 16.04
Compiz version: 1:
Google Chrome version: 51.0.2704.84-1

Steps to recreate:
1. Open a Google Chrome window. It does not have to be maximized.
2. Minimize the window.

Expected result: The next visible window is selected, and the user can switch windows by clicking on them.
Actual result: The next visible window is not selected, and clicking another window does not switch to it. Alt-Tab works, but Google Chrome must be restored by clicking on the icon in the panel in order for Compiz to work properly again.
