white windows are minimized windows .. maybe it's not a bug, but should be better than even the minimized windows are shown

summary: - Scale plugin shows some windows completely white

Status changed to 'Confirmed' because the bug affects multiple users.

Changed in compiz (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

I'd add that the expected behaviour is not to show the minimized windows , or to show them as thumbnails at bottom , but the last one is more of a feature request .
