added compiz bug task as there are confirms in the bug that disabling
compiz (some even claim that disabling the compiz "show desktop" plugin)

milestoning karmic-updates to indicate that it feels worthwhile to role
a SRU in case we find a backportable solution for this.

** Description changed:

- Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree
+ IMPORTANT 1: Please see the WORKAROUND a few lines below.
+ IMPORTANT 2: Please don't post any "me too message"; use the "Does this
+ bug affect you?" feature you can find a bit above this bug description
+ on launchpad.
+ IMPORTANT 3: Do not post anything if you haven't read all comments to
+ verify that your point hasn't been made. If you feel tempted to stop
+ reading because there are too many messages, that is a strong indicator
+ that you shouldn't add even more comments. Developers have a tough time
+ to find anything if you post redundant stuff. So please abstain from
+ doing that.
+ ====
+ So here the bug and workaround.
  For example on youtube, whilst it recognises my mouse moving over
  various buttons, actual mouse clicks are not recognised. I can navigate
  using 'tab' but this is very painful. I can also right click. The
  problem doesn't occur with other flash players, e.g. swfdec-mozilla.
+ WORKAROUND: disable compiz
+ WORKAROUND 2: disable the show desktop plugin in compiz (to be confirmed?)
