Bug Description

Since upgrading to Unity 3.6.8-0ubuntu3, the Launcher now appears _under_ application windows, making it useless as a modal entry point to the Unity chrome.

Ideally, if the Launcher is ever visible, it needs to be on top of *everything* except the screensaver.

@Paul: can you test the new daily build of compiz in https://launchpad.net/~unity/+archive/daily which contains a lot of fixes that may actually resolve that issue as well.

This showing up on the searches as undecided is wrong, it is clearly something we want fixed for the release, or as soon afterwards as possible.

This should be fixed with the new compiz version (apart from the fullscreen window which should to be discussed in bug #763680

@Kate: it's been set to critical, where we had access to to (ie, unity). Compiz is not in our juridiction for priorities.
