Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

On Ubuntu 11.04 Alpha3

Steps:
When Unity launcher is visible :
1) Open a terminal
2) Maximize window with ALT+F10
3) Restore window with ALT+F5
4) The window loses its focus

Expected:
When I restore a maximized window clicking on its restore button or using ALT+F5, I want to continue working in the same window.

Thanks,
