Bug Description

Whwn you use super+arrows to arrange windows on a workspace, and then switch to another workspace, and try to switch back using either super+#, or by clicking on a application in the launcher, instead of switching back to the original workspace, unity moves the application around between workspaces.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

1. switch to the guest session
2. switch launcher to auto hide
3. open dash, launch gedit
4. press super+left to resize it
5. press ctrl+alt+right to switch workspace
6. open nautilus from the launcher
7. click on the gedit icon on the launcher

WHAT HAPPENS:

gedit window moves from upper-left to the upper-right workspace

WHAT I EXPECTED:

unity should change from upper-right to the upper-left workspace, and gedit should become focused

summary: - even if only a tiny part of the window is visible on the workspace unity
- lets you alt-tab to it, and move it around
+ unity treats windows as belonging to multiple workspaces at the same
+ time
