Bug Description

When I hit <ctrl><super>2 the windows are tiled alright, but all non-{max,min}imized windows from all workspaces are moved to the current wokspace. This only happens with Compiz, everything is fine under Metacity.

This is probably related to the Workspace vs. Viewport batlle (Metacity vs. Compiz resp.). Libwnck does not have a lot of API to handle viewports: http://library.gnome.org/devel/libwnck/stable/

A bit of testing reveals that everything works fine under metacity. This bug is only present under Compiz... Probably related to the Workspace/Viewport duality.
