Comment 153 for bug 933776

@johnlea: I proposed a solution in #122 and #136.

If I understand correctly bug #689733 was just an incorrectly set shortcut (super+w was set to "scale all viewports" instead of "scale current viewport"). The solution (again, if I understand correctly) was to hack "scale all viewports" to display only the windows on the current viewport (which is an ugly hack and introduced a ton of other bugs).

Introducing a new option to compiz and keeping "scale all viewports" as it is would cause problems with with the upgrade path to 14.04, wouldn't it?

Having to change a keycombo is such a minor annoyance compared to having this bug (and all that come with it, flying windows, etc.). And as proposed in #122 we could even do it automatically.
