Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-terminal

I have a dual monitor setup.

1) start gnome terminal
2) Press F11 to go to fullscreen mode
3) create a new tab
4) switch between the tabs (to the new one and back)

i've seen the following behaviour:
when switching twice the first time the window changes the monitors (from left to right)
next switching the window moves to the next virtual workspace
it eventually reappears on the first workspace where it all started.

another time the tabs was detached and two gnome termnial windows where visible.

In Gnome Bugzilla Christian Persch said:

"Which window manager is that with? Please try if this happens when using
metacity, with compositing disabled (gconf key
/apps/metacity/general/compositing_manager => false)."

And bug is marked as NEEDINFO, could you provide this information to upstream developers?
