Description Joshua Rosen 2016-09-15 16:23:43 UTC
Description of problem: The order of windows gets stuck. Whne in this state clicking on a windows doesn't bring them to the top. When in this state the work around is to select a lower window and set the Always on Top attribute which will bring it to the top. Then you uncheck the attribute and things will work normally for a while. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Happens frequently. Seems to happen more when Firefox is open.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results: Window ordering is stuck, clicking on the window does nothing.

Expected results: Clicking on a window should bring the window to the front.
