Bug Description

I installed 11.04. Evolution and Firefox working together (any of these apps shown fullscreen or minimized)). Sometimes after working with Firefox (25-50% of times) I'm maximizing Evolution and see: first line is 'Global Menu', second line is 'Firefox tabs' and after that is Evolution window. When clicking inside window, Evolution reacts as it will be fullscreen (without drawn Firefox tabs) with 'one line' shift.

I saw many situations with this problem with different applications (for example with MonoDevelop + Evolution, Evolution + Firefox etc). It is hard to reproduce, but I found a one stable (for my system) situation:
1. Boot system.
2. Start Evolution (I'm starting via left-side Unity panel or via envelope at the top panel, there is no difference).
3. Click any hyperlink in the letter inside Evolution.
4. Firefox opened correctly. Minimize it (I'm using a mouse).
5. Click any (may be same link as in p.3) hyperlink in the letter inside Evolution.
6. Firefox maximizes in incorrect way (see picture). Also we can see a strange blue triangle at the left top corner.

I cannot reproduce this issue, when i click the second link, firefox don't automatically show up (but this is another bug), open the new link, but stay behind evolution and the blue triangle tell me that one application not showed on the desktop was called
