Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

Open an application. (For example an Terminal)
Open a new window of the same type. (Right click on the icon of the opened program – Terminal – and then "New Terminal")
Hide one of the opened windows.
Choose one of the two windows and select "Move to workspace 2". (Or 3,…)
Then try to show one of the windows, usually by clicking on the icon in the dash.


Quickly you'll see that nothing will happen.

Expected result:

There are some ways to deal with that problem: You can directly show the windows which was used at last.
Or you can ask the user which one he would see in the fourground, by showing both windows at the same time, so the user has the choice between the both.
