taking chromium-browser full-screen and then not doesn't repaint non-chromium-browser part of screen

Bug Description

Making chromium-browser display full-screen (by hitting F11) and then not (by hitting F11 again) does not repaint the part of the screen that is no longer occupied by chromium-browser. The following events do cause the non-chromium-browser part of the screen to repaint, as long as they occur on the same screen as chromium-browser:

- click outside of chromium-browser
- cause a window other than chromium-browser to take focus (by mousing over it or clicking it -- I use focus follows mouse)

In my dual-head setup, focusing a window on a different screen does not cause a repaint.

If the mouse is over a pixel in which a non-chromium-browser window will draw when F11 cancels full-screen mode, then the repaint happens correctly.

This does not appear to happen in all applications. For example, gnome-terminal also interprets F11 as full-screen, but this repaint problem doesn't occur with gnome-terminal. (On the other hand, in the case of gnome-terminal, if the mouse is over a chromium-browser pixel when F11 cancels full-screen, then gnome-terminal returns to normal size, then seems to receive a maximize event.)

I am reporting all of the above in terms of compiz / unity, because I suspect the bug(s) do not lie with apps that go full-screen but rather have something to do with window manager / display manager events.
