Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Using unity 3.2.16 on natty, open a odt document on your desktop using openoffice or libreoffice, unity gets really confused and stop reacting, the launcher doesn't show on the corresponding workspace and the unity-panel doesn't respond either

Could you be more detailed of what you actually did? I tried what you described and could not find any problems. The launcher always worked, was reponsive, visible on all of my desktop (switched around while the .odt was loading) and the indicators on the panel I could effortlessly interact with.

I just saw this too. I opened libreoffice, and i could no longer click on the launcher.

It manifests in the same way as the invisible X window bug that appeared previously (bug 705672), but this time, xprop doesn't show any information if you click on the dead areas of the screen.

I was able to open an odt file saved on my Desktop. However, the Libreoffice menu does not integrate well with global menu. Global menu still shows the nautilus menu as available on the Desktop.

This no longer happens on the latest Compiz and unity, marking as such. Please re-open if you can reproduce it.
