Bug Description


I noticed some odd behavior with more nautilus windows, if they are located in 2 workspaces like half inf first and other half in second... If I move to other workspace and then I click on incon of nautilus it doesnt bring that window to focus > it just doesnt do anything. When I manualy move to next workspace and then click on nautilus it brings both windows just fine.

So steps for reproduction of this behavior

1) Open 1/2 Nautilus windows and located it like is situated on picture (Edge of workspace, probably just problem with location of title bar)
2) Move to next workspace and try to click Nautilus icon to move to that window

I am sorry if this is duplicate bug. I am using fresh install of Oneiric and i have Nvidia Optimus in box.

If anything more is needed, for this pls tell me.

Okay I just tested it again with other windows and it seems, that it can be any other window... like Gnome Terminal. When i just place that terminal just a litle after the edge of workspace(for instance by mistake), then i can't just click on icon at Launcher to bring me that terminal. When Terminal is moved out of that area everything works correctly and nice.

Recorded this video with terminal, where you can see what is some kind of "problem with getting of window position"

more of a compiz bug than unity itself I believe. WS management really needs love :/
