[Bug 1215798] Re: losing windows on Ubuntu 13.10


I have the same bug. Ubuntu 14.04. If I run a web server such as django
in terminal, close the laptop lid, sign in again, and the terminal
window is gone. alt+TAB will show it, but tabbing over to the terminal
icon shows nothing.  alt+SPACE will show the context window, and I can
maximize it. If I minimize it, I see the mimimize animation to the left
sidebar, but clicking terminal in the left sidebar does not bring the
window back.

  losing windows on Ubuntu 13.10

Bug description:
  I found, that gnome-shell lose some windows.

  I see it in two ways:

  1. gnome-terminal: after a restart - with ALT+F2 -> r or kill -HUP
  $(pgrep gnome-shell|head -n1) or resume from suspend - a terminal
  windows can not be opened any more, but is listed in ALT+TAB list (I
  add a video)

  2. remmina: I opened a connection and sometimes the window is just not
  to see any more - also not in ALT+TAB. But it must there, when I open
  a new connection in a other group I get a new window. When I open a
  new connection in the same group as the lost windows (it get normally
  attached as a new tab to the window) it get a connect to the server,
  but not the window. I can see on the terminal server and netstat, that
  the connection is established.
