Public bug reported:

Affects: metacity (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

After I upgraded to dapper I noticed that when I open a new Firefox
window from xchat/gnome-terminal, the whole screen flickers in white
briefly, and then a Firefox window appears in the background. It is as
if Firefox appears on top of the original window, and is then quickly
moved below.

This did not happen on breezy.
