Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

Seems that there is a race condition where changing the frame extents will cause the window to be resized and update the input frame, so that when the window is closed the frame extents have not been reset by the unmap notification since we never get it, such that when the window is re-mapped compiz will think there is already a frame on it, even though there isn't so it just uses the default decorations.

  * debian/compiz-core.install:
    - image move to the final destination
  * debian/patches/100_bump_core.h.patch:
    - bump for ABI breakage
  * debian/compiz-decorator:
    - use gtk-window-decorator and not unity-window-decorator as it's really
      crashy for now (will probably redo an upload tomorrow with a fixed
