Hmm, there's something strange here. I don't think this behaviour of
showing a menu when you click on a group is anything new - e.g. see:
So, what's actually different about the behaviour in rawhide? Did the
window list just used to group less aggressively so you never noticed
the group menu thing before or ... ?
Yes, the menu is not the problem. It is that when you click on the
given item in the menu, nothing gets raised. That is the problem. The
grouping also seems to happen WAY too soon in recent rawhide builds
(1024x768 with standard panel setup you have enough room for at least
8 items without shrinking their size any from the ridiculously small
default and yet it groups at three... how screwed up!)!
Rechecking this bug today and it seems to be fixed.
