Bug Description

Using 4.22 in Oneiric:

go on a workspace open something (let's say xchat)
 open 2 firefox
 focus xchat
 click on firefox in the launcher
 ctrl-W to close it
 i.e close all the tabs
 you get the second instance focussed
 ctrl-W (or type something)
 the input goes in the background dialog not the focussed one

Or said differently, if you use the launcher to focus something which has 2 instance and close the instance which got focussed using ctrl-W you get the second instance displayed on top but your input gets back to the other applications, quite confusing

summary: - sometimes the keyboard doesn't go to the focussed dialog
+ sometimes the keyboard input doesn't go to the apparently focussed
+ dialog

This bug was fixed in the package compiz - 1:0.9.6+bzr20110929-0ubuntu5

---------------
compiz (1:0.9.6+bzr20110929-0ubuntu5) oneiric-proposed; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/fix-864330.patch:
    - fix windows which can have towed moving (LP: #864330)
  * debian/patches/fix-864478.patch:
    - Window shading is broken (LP: #864478)

compiz (1:0.9.6+bzr20110929-0ubuntu4) oneiric-proposed; urgency=low

  * debian/control:
    - don't suggest nvidia-glx, it's part of the old initial packaging
      and probably a bad hint on non nvidia system (LP: #844218)
  * Cherry-pick upstream patches:
    - Windows should not automatically be focused when opened if the focus
      is on another application (LP: #748840)
    - Launcher - If a spread contains minimised windows, when the spread
      exits, the minimised windows momentarily appear on the desktop
      before disappearing (LP: #863328)
    - reproducible stacking bug in compiz (LP: #869316)
    - Click-dragging a window that's stacked above a fullscreen window will
      cause it to go underneath the fullscreen window (LP: #869919)
    - sometimes the keyboard input doesn't go to the apparently focussed
      dialog (LP: #869967)
    - Opening mumble can cause it to be stacked above the dash if you
      open the dash at the same time (LP: #865863)
    - Sometimes configure events are missed and windows move slow as a result
      (LP: #866752)
    - Workaround ubuntu desktop unity. Mouse at the left side doesn't reveal
      launcher (LP: #832150)
