Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2008-11-21 07:30:16 EST
This was with metacity-2.24.0-2.fc10.ppc

I built 2.25.5-1 to debug, and the problem seems to have gone away.
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 00:43:11 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
