Bug Description

At on_stage_captured_event:543 in expose-manager.vala, last_selected_clone gets set to null if the event was not a button press. However, events can arrive between the initial click and the processing of that event. This creates a race condition whereby events for the mouse moving can arrive after the event for a window being selected, but before the processing of the mouse click event.
