Description Deepu K S 2017-01-26 14:34:00 UTC
Description of problem:
In case of multiple monitors, Alt-Tab (to switch application windows) has no effect on secondary monitors. 
Alt-tab on the primary xscreen 0 works as intended. Alt-tab on xscreen 1 through 3 has no effect.

Using a single X screen across all monitors allows alt-tab to work, but individual X screens per monitor is required for business use.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to KDE session on a multi-monitor setup.
2. Open any application on screen 1 and then on screen 2.
3. Try to switch windows by Alt-tab.

Actual results:
Alt-Tab works on screen 0 (primary)
Alt-Tab switch doesn't work on secondary screens.

Expected results:
Alt-Tab switch should work on all screens.
