Package: xfwm4
Version: 4.8.3-1
Severity: normal

If you click on a dragable bar of a GTK3 application (i.e. primary toolbar /
menubar), move the window and click at a non-dragable area, the window moves
around widely without any logical direction.

You can reproduce this bug by:  click on a dragable bar, move the window, click
somewhere else in the window. The expected behaviour should be that the window
does not jump or move around.

This bug is also reported to the GTK+ bugzilla:

This bug is confirmed by Xfce4 bugzilla and launchpad:

It seems that the upstream Xfce developers have fixed in Xfce 4.10, but Debian
Wheezy is now frozen, so I wonder if the bug can be fixed in Xfce 4.8 (the
version in Debian Wheezy).
