After upgrading Xfce from 4.0.5 to 4.0.6 there occurs a problem when
xawtv is running and I switch to another desktop using CTRL-Fx. The
window decorations of xawtv stay on the desktop xawtv was started but
the picture of the running TV-program follows and stays with the active
desktop as if it is sticky.
When I use the Xfce menu on xawtv (RMB-->send to desktop) the window
decorations of xawtv are sent to the other desktop but the picture of
the running TV-program stays on the active desktop.
When picture and window decorations of xawtv are separated, then the TV
picture is on all active desktops on top of all other windows, even on
top of the focused window.

That behaviour only occurs if xawtv capture mode  is "overlay"! When
xawtv capture mode is "grab display", then the picture of the running
program does not stay with the active desktop when switching via CTRL-Fx
or sending xawtv to another desktop via the Xfce menu.

As mentioned above that behaviour was introduced with 4.0.6. It has
not occured under 4.0.5. Both versions have been compiled from source
with gcc 3.4.0.
