Bug Description


To reproduce, maximise a window like Thunderbird. Then open a new window into the 'restored state' (non-maximised) on top of the maximised window. Clicking in the empty space in the top bar does not bring the maximised window back to the top of the window z order stack.

Desired resolution:

When a window is maximised, clicking in the empty space in the menu bar bar should bring the maximised window to the front of the z order stack.

I saw this as a dupe independently. Marking this one as a duplicate of the newer bug, because it has "fix committed" in unity-2d.
