Bug Description

Possibly a duplicate of 862430?

Open a window
Use CTRL+ALT+Left/Right to move between workspaces.
Observe (sometimes) that the window moves off to the left as we move to the right hand workspace, and the window wraps around appearing on the right hand side of the desktop as we move to the right (and window moves left).

It's visible twice in this video
