Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: metacity

Problem: Running applications vanish from window list inside the gnome
panel. The applications are still running. I can still hear sound from
my TV card, Firefox is still running. They just don't have a tab inside
the window list anymore.

In the last few weeks this has happened about 10 times. The only thing I
can do is kill the proccesses tru task manager and restart them.

When: happens allot when using the java IDE netbeans and I open a dialog box (like the library manager) or I start to debug an application.
Today it happened when I minimized µtorrent running inside wine.

Running Ubuntu dapper 6.06
