Bug Description

This is a very strange bug, but I can reliably reproduce it on Ubuntu 14.10 amd64 with latest updates.

Steps to reproduce:

* Log in into GNOME Flashback (Metacity) session.
* Open Libreoffice Calc.
* Click on the "Borders" item on the toolbar and select the first option.

After that, gnome-panel will be invisible. However, it is still there, and restarting Metacity makes it show again.
This does not happen when using Compiz.

See the screencast attached.

Thanks Alberts, I tested it and it fixes the issue. Will you cherry-pick it to Metacity?

Yes, but only for 3.14 release.

That doesn't matter, I will apply this patch in Ubuntu in the meantime.
