Bug Description

Hello,

Since today's updates of compiz, the workspace switcher don't work the same way as before. When you have a maximized windows and you click on the launcher's workspace icon, the workspace switcher appears but the maximized windows aren't fullscreened. You can see the voids that represent the launcher and the panel.

I attached a screenshot for a better understanding of the problem.

Confirmed. I did not even realize the old behaviour existed. This probably regressed in r3481.

Actually, make it Low. I don't think it's a good idea to unrealistically pick and choose which workspaces to scale differently in expo based on their windows. All workspaces should be scaled identically.

Sounds like this is a regression on the old behaviour from when we upstreamed the patch.

Daniel the reason I made it do that was for the exact reasons this bug points out - things just look wrong when you enter the workspace switcher mode.

So this won't be fixed for raring?

Will this be fixed in Trusty? Since it's an LTS and 12.04 does not have this bug, it would make sense to fix this regression, looks much more polished when windows are maximized.
