Bug Description

I don't know, if it is default or not, because I used ccsm to configure unity, but I have a "Show desktop" icon in my alt-tab switcher.

When I am on Firefox and release alt-tab on LibreOffice, it brings me LibreOffice. OK
When I am on LibreOffice and release alt-tab on LibreOffice, I stay on LibreOffice. OK

When I relase alt-tab on "Show Desktop" while I am in Firefox or LibreOffice, it brings me the desktop. When I do it again when I am on the desktop, it brings me Firefox or LibreOffice again. This is not consistent, isn't it ?

I think this is by design. You "lower all windows to show the desktop" and choosing the same entry again "raises back the window back to where you were" (except that it doesn't -> bug 877730.

As such, I think this ticket is invalid.
