Bug Description

When I resize window to take half of the screen (by using super+left arrow, or by dragging it to the left), switch workspace to the right one, and try to switch back to the left workspace by clicking on the application icon in the launcher instead of switching workspaces application is first moved to the bottom right workspace and then to the top one.

Hey, it may be a duplicate of another bug but from description it doesn't seem like it's bug 862430.

I do not believe this is a duplicate bug. There is no flickering. Entire Windows jump between virtual desktops. I have captured a sequence of images to demonstrate this behavior.

The first three images in the attachment are me switching to the right through my three virtual desktops by means of the keyboard shortcut. In the forth image, I switch to the left. You may note that the fullscreen window on 2 is now missing. In the fifth image, I switch again to the left and see that some of the windows which were on desktop two are now on desktop one.
