Bug Description

This regards the Desktop-based viewport switching tab in ccsm. I set "Move Next" and "Move Prev" so that the cursor must be on a screen edge to switch desktops (when I use the mouse wheel). It worked fine in Gutsy, and it works well in Jaunty with this exception.

If I open one or more windows on a given desktop, scrolling along the screen edges no longer does anything.
Note that if I minimize the window(s), normal functionality resumes.
This is not related to window position (i.e. touching/overlapping edges).

EDIT: Actually, it seems to deal with application focus. If no applications are focused, it works with open windows. Of course, switching to a viewport with a window open causes that window to gain focus.

Thanks for your time. Sorry if I did anything wrong, this is my first report. =)

I ran it without the package name before I saw your update, but it appears to be identical to the updated command. I ran this on my laptop which exhibits the same problem. I'll run it on my desktop also when I get a chance (tonight, probably).

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that this seems to be resolved for me now. I've tried for so long but upon trying again today it worked! I don't know if it was a side-effect of some other update or that I was doing something wrong every other time, but I'm a happy camper. Thanks for your time. =)

I just found out that the reason it works is because I used the settings in the Desktop Wall component this time instead of the Viewport Switcher component. The latter still exhibits this behavior, but perhaps it wasn't meant to be used with Desktop Wall.
