Bug Description

Install unity 3.8.14 from natty-proposed, restart your session

Test case:
- Start mypaint and press F11
- Press 'b' and the brush window should appear
-> the launcher should _not_ appear

Unity 3.2.4

there is a new nice option in ccsm to not hide the launcher if the active window is not covering the whole screen. But the problem is that now when a modal dialog of a fullscreen window pops up the launcher is shown too, it should not.

Yeah, it's somewhat annoying... I noticed it myself recently while playing with mypaint: when I was selecting a brush, I was getting the launcher to show (animated), which was very distracting.
