Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 90790
Maximized windows do not honor focus_mode preference
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:53:42 EDT
Description of problem:
When using focus mode sloppy, or mouse (GConf /, apps, metacity, general,
focus_mode); if you have a smaller window on top of a maximized window the
maximized window comes to the front whenever the mouse goes over it. This
happens almost instantaneously even if you have set the auto_raise value very
high, or shut it off completely.
The focus_mode behavior works as it should for non-maximized windows.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set focus_mode to sloppy, and auto_raise off
2.Open two windows (i.e. gedit & calculator)
3.Maximize one of the windows (gedit)
4.Bring the smaller to the front (calculator)
5.Move the mouse over the maximized window
Actual Results: The smaller window 'disappears' behind the larger one.
Expected Results: Focus should move to the maximized window, but it should not
be brought to the front.
This works fine for me in metacity 2.6.2
