Bug Description

[Impact]

I switched away from the fullscreen crusaders king II game (to different workspace).

When I tried to return back to the workspace where I left the game it was minimized.

Switching to the minimized game resulted to a resolution switch to 1024x768 even tough game was originally 1600x900. (The game selected 1024x768 automatically when launched frist time)

During the switching compiz decided to crash.

I had enabled extra indicators in use were time/calendar, sound, battery, messaging, keyboard layout, network (mobile broadband in use), banshee and steam.

[Test case]

1. Use indicators or menus, switching applications
2. Attach / detach monitors, or change resolution
3. Unity should not crash

[Regression potential]

Not known.
