  * debian/patches/fix-872161.patch:

    - compiz crashed with SIGSEGV in CompWindow::serverBorderRect()
      (LP: #834585)
    - Workspace switcher makes windows lose decorations (LP: #853951)

    - Windows like gnome-terminal have awkward space around them after being
      semi-maximized (LP: #865179)
    - Grid plugin behaviour random (LP: #862260)
    - Don't apply snapping to maximized windows (LP: #862261)

      animations (LP: #864476)
    - Rendering glitches when resuming from expo mode (LP: #868121)
