Description of problem:
As in summary. When I click to minimize xmms it brings another window to front
instead of minimizing xmms. I have niticed it especially with the firefox
browser. Minimizing do not take any effect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

I can confirm this problem... but what is happening is that clicking to minimize
xmms makes metacity (the GNOME window manager) crash. Two possibilities :
- The way xmms tries to minimize itself is wrong.
- There is a bug in metacity.
I would tend to suspect a bug in metacity, which might be worth investigating.
Same problem here with bmp, bmpx and audacious. Is it because Metacity doesn't
managed these apps' windows? I mean they use their own window border.
If I rebuild metacity packages without metacity-2.13.144-bling.patch,
metacity-18.104.22.168.2006.02.16-static-cm.patch, the minimization is OK.
It would be great if the maintainer of the metacity package make a new package
for FC5 updates without experimental bling patches or fix these patches.
It is a very annoying bug. :(
This definitely seems like a metacity bug, but I can't seem to find how to
reassign a bug from en Extras to a Core component... maybe you could file a new
bug against metacity and put a link to it here?
OK, changing the product to Fedora Core worked, so I'll now change the component
to metacity and reassign to the default owner.
metacity-2.14.3-1.fc5.1 fixed the problem. Please close this bugzilla entry.
