Bug Description

The Ubuntu Error Tracker has been receiving reports about a problem regarding unity. This problem was most recently seen with version 1:0.9.12.2+16.04.20160714-0ubuntu1, the problem page at https://errors.ubuntu.com/problem/07d63967ac9e4ad7a1f17990b115a433ed66408c contains more details.

[Impact]

Sometimes gsettings org.compiz.core:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/ active-plugins is not including scale, we need to ensure it's always there when loading unity session.

[Test case]

There's no easy way to reproduce the issue without some manual intervention.
So one way is, set the unity active plugin list without scale:
  gsettings set org.compiz.core:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/ \
    active-plugins "['core', 'composite', 'opengl', 'compiztoolbox', 'vpswitch', \
    'snap', 'mousepoll', 'resize', 'place', 'move', 'wall', 'grid', 'regex', \
    'imgpng', 'session', 'gnomecompat', 'animation', 'fade', \
    'unitymtgrabhandles', 'workarounds', 'expo', 'ezoom', 'unityshell']"

When restarting your session, the scale plugin should be there again (and thus doing Super+W should work, and so spreading multiple windows of an application).

Also scale plugin should be correctly reloaded and listed in
  gsettings get org.compiz.core:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/

Another way to reproduce is:
 1. Open two windows of the same application
 2. Launch the command above
 3. Click on launcher icon to trigger the application spread

Unity should crash and immediately being reloaded. Now pressing the launcher icon should properly start the spread.

[Regression Potential]

Compiz load time might be increased, custom plugin list could be reverted to the default ones.
