Window position influenced by switch to fullscreen video

Bug #205700 reported by ManuPeng on 2008-03-23
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
compiz (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This is due to compiz, as this issue doesn't appear with disabled desktop effects. My video card is an Nvdia and I'm using the development branch of Hardy, daily build on March, the 20th with all updates.

After switching to fullscreen video and back to windowed video, the window's coordinate remain the same.

1) Open a video with totem, or start tvtime
2) Position the application's window in the upper-left corner of the workspace. This is important to view the impact of this bug, the window must be positioned in such a way that it can't be moved to the left without leaving the screen area (same with top)
3) Press the "f" key to switch to fullscreen
4) Press the "f" key again to switch back to window mode
5) Repeat 3) and 4) over and over and watch as the window moves down and to the right with every new switch

Result: The window is moving across the screen with every new switch for some reason.

Hey, thanks for your post.

Well, I'm having issues with the latest 2.6.24-15 kernel, so I haven't updated my system this week, but I see no relevant compiz package in the list of available updates for my system so I'm pretty positive I have the latest. As of now, I have compiz version 0.7.2 installed.

Anyway, this bug, I assume, can be reproduced on your own system just the same, or am I wrong? All you need is totem and a video to play in it, no?
