Bug Description

I've got a two row - three column virtual desktop setup, and quite often when I switch between two desktop within the same row, the contents of the third desktop is flashed on the screen, as if the switching movement actually went the other way wrapping around the whole desktop border or so. The switcher popup also shows the flashing.

Maybe it's related that when using the workspace swicher launcher and selecting desktops, but not "zooming" in them, also makes the contents flash, but this time looks like the windows go through every desktop really quickly.

confirmed this happens with plain classic gnome + compiz, so moving it there.
