Bug Description

I noticed that the autocomplete dropdown was not working in Firefox URL bar, and that if I right-clicked on the Firefox window (inside the content) then the menu would appear but disappear again as soon as I moved the mouse before I could click anything. Then I pressed Ctrl-Alt-Down to switch workspace and Compiz crashed. It seems to me that there is a state that Compiz gets into which can be detected because it messes with keyboard/mouse capture in applications and later causes Compiz to crash when it needs to have focus.

  * debian/rules, debian/control:
    - add nuxabiversion capability as upstream is breaking a lot the ABI
      wasn't bumping the soname. Create a virtual package similar to what
      we already do in compiz to ensure we dep on the right version.
      Remove the makeshlibs override then as not needed anymore.
    - bump to nux 2.0 with new libnux-2.0-0, libnux-2.0-common, libnux-2.0-dev
      packages. Make the necessary changes in .install files as well
    - don't ship anymore the -doc package.
  * debian/nux-tools.install:
    - move the apport file there instead of the -common package to enable
