Package: metacity
Version: 1:2.6.2-2
Severity: normal
Tags: sid

I have my keybindings set so that ctrl-up and ctrl-down move to the
workspace on the left and right, respectively, and ctrl-right switches
between windows in the current workspace (or, as it's listed, "Move
between windows with popup").  For some reason, in some workspaces, I
can access windows that are in other workspaces by using ctrl-right.
This is quite frustrating when I hit ctrl-right, expecting a certain
window to pop up, and instead of get a random window from some other
workspace popping up.

I've taken screenshots of this problem:
^ That's my desktop, in the 4th workspace; you can see i've got random
other windows open in my other workspaces, and 3 gvim windows open in
the current workspace.  However, when I hit ctrl-right, you can see
what metacity sees as the available windows:
For some reason, it adds the totem (which is in workspace 1) and
mozilla-firebird (which is in workspace 3) windows to the list of
available windows.  If I cycle through available windows using
ctrl-right, totem and mozilla-firebird end up being moved from their
current workspaces into workspace 4.  If I go into any other workspaces
and try this, metacity behaves correctly.
