  Gnome-terminal continues to show outline cursor after getting focus

Status in gnome-terminal package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Normall, it works like this: When a terminal is focused its cursor is
  solid (and blinking).  When a terminal is not focused, its cursor is
  an outline (and doesn't blink).

  Sometimes (but increasingly more often in Oneiric than with older
  versions) I get the outline cursor even when my GNOME Terminal is

  Steps to reproduce:
  1. Open two windows on different workspaces: say, a browser on workspace 1, and a terminal on workspace 2
  2. Focus the browser window
  3. Trigger the Scale plugin for windows on all workspaces (<Super>W is the default keybinding for this, I believe)
  4. Click on the terminal to focus it (and switch to workspace 2)

  Expected behavior: cursor in terminal is filled solid and blinking

  Actual behaviour: cursor in terminal is an empty, non-blinking

  This does not appear to happen when the terminal is on the same
  workspace as the window I'm switching from.
