Ubuntu – Wrong window gets focus when switching workspace


I enjoy using VLC to play video while I do other work.

The VLC window is set to by 'Always on top' and 'Always on visible workspace'.

In former versions of Ubuntu this has worked great. When I changed to a different workspace then whatever application I was working in would get the focus.

But in 12.04 the VLC window will now always steal focus when I switch workspace.

Does anyone know how to change this?
