Description of problem:
When switching workspace by clicking on the workspace switcher applet,
the focus is given to the window whose thumbnail was clicked on. This
behavior is unintuitive and it is difficult if not impossible to
reliably click on the correct window. A better way would be to
remember which window had focus when the workspace was last used and
give focus to that window.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open 2 windows A and B on a workspace such that both are visible
and A has focus
2. Switch to another workspace
3. Click on the thumbnail of B in the workspace switcher applet
Actual Results: B is raised and gets focus
Expected Results: A should remain raised and get focus
Rather I meant this is also true when switching workspaces with
keybindings: metacity should remember the last window that had
focus on the workspace when using focus-follows-mouse mode.
Should that be in a separate report?
Jens: yours sounds like a different bug.
Marking this bug as closed UPSTREAM. A fix is in libwnck 126.96.36.199 and
we'll have this version or later in FC3. See:
Jens: to clarify, your bug should be logged against metacity
