Bug Description

Clicking the launcher of a window on another workspace switches to that workspace. If you place a non-maximized window on the top-right workspace and push it to the right edge (or let it expand to the right half) Unity doesn't switch to it correctly.

For me the clicking the launcher when I'm on the b-r workspace switches to t-r, but on t-l and b-l nothing happens. When I intentionally leave a couple of pixels between the window and the edge it works correctly.

Even more confusing behavior in the vertical direction.

Push a window to the bottom of one of the lower workspaces.
Go to the workspace above it.
Click the launcher.

The window moves down and wraps around by approximately twice the top panel height.

Hi,

Unfortunately I can't reproduce this behaviour. Do you happen to be using Unity 2D rather than Unity 3D?

I'm running Unity 3D (I think!) and ran apport. I've also reproduced this on another computer.

I think this bug is caused by Bug #755842 (Non-maximized windows which sit on the border of a workspace move when called)

I have added the requested video. Looks like tankdriver is correct. The window moves, which puts it barely onto the current desktop. Therefore the desktop does not switch to focus on the window. If the window is not next to the edge the behavior is not expressed.

Morgen,

Thanks, I couldn't get screencast software to work, but that's exactly what I mean.
