Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

With compiz++ built from git, Conky gets mapped out of the screen when started after Compiz. When skip_taskbar is not set in conkyrc, then it comes down from the upper right region, as if from another workspace. When sticky is not set in conkyrc, it is also possible to move the window back into position.

A related issue is that some new windows, e.g. Evince windows get mapped partially off-screen.

This behaviour is consistent, and 100% reproducible.

Changed in compiz (Ubuntu):
assignee: nobody → Sam "SmSpillaz" Spilsbury (smspillaz)

This bug appears to happen because conky (or someone) sets the CWY bit
in it's ConfigureRequests when it's window is too big for the screen

It seems to me that compiz is behaving perfectly reasonably in this case.
