Bug Description

Ubuntu 12.04
Compiz version : 1:

Launch any LibreOffice application. The focus is on it. Then, call nautilus: the focus isn't on nautilus (no title nor menu bar on the top panel), and the launcher bar shows the focus arrow on the LibreOffice icon. You may open as many nautilus windows as you like, as long as you do it by the unity bar, the focus is lost between nautilus and LibreOffice (no title, window control or menu bar related to LibreOffice either, when you get to that situation, plus you cannot display the LibreOffice window again by clicking the icon since the bar thinks the window is already in focus: so focus seems kind of lost...)
Moreover, it appears that most of the time I close a LibreOffice window, the window disappears, but the focus arrow stays: no window anymore, no left arrow next to the icon, but remains the right arrow. However, this doesn't happen every time...

I can confirm this. Open LibreOffice Writer, then open Nautilus; focus is still on Libreoffice, no change in global menu bar. still Writer.

Changed in compiz (Ubuntu):

Hi, thanks for taking the time to improve Ubuntu, I can confirm this bug too, however it only happens with nautilus, so, I'll reassign the bug to nautilus, and will mark it as duplicate of bug #994949. Please look at the other bug report to see if there is any missing information that you can provide, or to see if there is a workaround for the bug. Additionally, any further discussion regarding the bug should occur in the other report. Feel free to continue to report any other bugs you may find.
