[Jaunty] Calendar applet popup opens under focused windows

Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

I am using compiz 0.8.2-0ubuntu6 on Ubuntu 9.04 amd64, it-IT l10n.

With recent updates, I discovered the calendar popup that shows up clicking on the clock applet of GNOME panel opens under the focused window.

Steps to reproduce:
1. open a window and make sure it covers the top-right corner of the desktop and it is focused
2. click on the clock applet

Expected result: the calendar popup opens on top of the focused window
What happens: the calendar popup stays under the focused window

I attach a screenshot of the problem.
It seems to be the same problem of bug #131050 fixed in Gutsy, and the workaround described on that bug works for me (clicking on the focused window after steps 1 and 2 make the popup appear).
I also tried using a Guest account, but I cannot reproduce the problem.

This is not fixed for me, on a fully upgraded Ubuntu Jaunty beta system. I have compiz package version 1:0.8.2-0ubuntu6. I noticed this with the Gnome-Do application, which appears behind an active window when summoned, and can confirm it also with the calendar pop-down applet.

I don't know what the "ubuntu6" part means instead of "ubuntu7". Does that mean my update manager didn't detect a newer version of Compiz available?

Can anyone else confirm that this is not solved?

Thanks for the help, guys. When I re-ran the update process it detected some extra packages that hadn't upgraded properly before. Confirming fixed.
