           Summary: xfce crashes when switching workspace when application
                    is being loaded
           Product: Xfce
           Version: 4.2.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: xfce-bugs at xfce.org
        ReportedBy: whyz at home.se

I usually start game apps on a different workspace. Starting fuhquake (a 
quakeworld client, www.fuhquake.net) takes a while, and if i switch workspace 
while it loads, xfce totally hangs when the quake window appears on the other 
workspace. Both the mouse and keyboard input hangs. I can't even switch myself 
to a console. However, if i start the game as normal (fuhquake in a windowed 
mode, waiting for the application to load before switching workspace), i can 
switch windows (alt+tab) and workspaces as i should be able to without a crash.

I am not sure how other applications respond to this behaviour, perhaps it's 
fuhquake that grabs the mouse and keyboard. But still, it is within a window, 
and the mouse and keyboard work properly just like with any other application 
if i just let fuhquake start without switching workspace while it loads. I can 
imagine that similar applications have the same problem. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start fuhquake-gl.glx
2. before the application has opened its window, switch workspace

Actual Results:  
xfce is hung. Have to remotely kill fuhquake-gl.glx, because neither keyboard 
nor mouse responds.

Expected Results:  
When the fuhquake window is raised on the other workspace, i want to be able to 
switch back to it and start using the application.

gtk+ 2.6.4-r1
linux 2.6.10
