Description Bradley Gottfried 2003-05-13 15:57:16 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):

How reproducible:

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
