Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. initiate scale plugin (either by keyboard or by pointing mouse to the upper right corner of desktop)
2. select another window to switch to
3. press Enter to select it
window is switched but all windows loose border and compiz is gone
just the first effect, later can be ommitted
Just to emphasize than switching with mouse works perfectly.

Can you reproduce this on rawhide ? i.e with the 0.8.2 builds?
I know you have been very busy triaging (and I am doing so ;-).
Could it be possible to test again on Rawhide.
I have seen around a couple of more or less similar issues (compiz + scale plugins invocation leading to compiz crash on F11 x86_64 ... ) that were reported as fixed in Rawhide (if this is the same issue).
Many thanks in advance.
