Comment 13 for bug 755842

In Oneiric this is even worse due to the new Alt-Tab behaviour of including windows on all workspaces. I experience this mostly with vmware (since maximising the window and just dragging it so big that all sides touch the sides of the monitor are distinct things in vmware). Previously the shift only happened when clicking the vmware icon in the launcher. I could easily compensate that by putting the window on a dedicated workspace of its own and using workspace switching to get to and fro.

Now, when switching from the workspace with the problematic window to a different workspace, the window gets recorded into the alt-tab history, so the bug is triggered when next I hit alt-tab.
