Package: metacity
Version: 1:2.6.3-2
Severity: normal

I encounter a very annoying usability bug in metacity: when I alt-tab
to cycle applications, the list often contains windows that live in
other desktops (mozilla and emacs are usually the ones being
mistakenly added in the list). When selected (by mistake, because I
don't see the frame around the window), the window is moved to the
current desktop, which clutters my layout...
