2006-09-30 22:43:11 fatsheep description This bug happens on Ubuntu Dapper 64-bit running the GNOME desktop environment. I have not tested it on Edgy or KDE. When running some full screen games, the ALT+TAB shortcut will not minimize the window and you are forced to exit in order to return to the desktop. Full screen games I have found this to be true in include Tremulous (www.tremulous.net), Nexuiz (www.nexuiz.com), Wolfenstein Enemy Territory, and Unreal Tournament 2004 (http://www.unrealtournament.com/ut2004/). TO REPRODUCE THIS BUG: 1. Open up one of the above listed games. 2. Attempt to minimize the game with the ALT + TAB shortcut.
