I got a possible bug, can please someone try to reproduce so I can fill a

1. Get a workspace, layout doesnt matter (I call it "1")
2. Get a workspace with a tabbed layout (I call it "2")
3. Open 2 Windows on workspace "2" (I take a evince and a firefox)
4. Open a terminal on workspace "1"
5. Start an mplayer with a video-file on workspace "1"
6. Move the floating video-window over to workspace "2" (mod+shift+2)
7. Make the second tab in the workspace active.
8. Move the mouse into the floating movie-window

Bug now:
When moving into the floating movie window the tab in the background is changed
to the first tab. I think this shouldnt happen and is quite anoying if you try
to watch a movie while surfing in the internet and everytime you move your mouse
to the movie-window the tabs switch.

Can anybody reproduce? I can record a movie if its not clear what to do.
