1.80.1. RHBA-2011:0107: bug fix update

An updated metacity package that fixes various bugs is now available.
Metacity is the default window manager for the GNOME desktop.
Important: the RHBA-2010:0245 - metacity bug fix and enhancement update introduced two new GConf preferences, no_focus_windows and new_windows_always_on_top. This update enhances the capabilities provided by these preferences.
This updated metacity package includes fixes for the following bugs:
* In order to prevent the system from focusing new windows of applications automatically, you needed to define the applications in the no_focus_windows option. With this update, if the no_focus_windows option is activated, only new windows of the currently-focused application are focused and new windows of any other application are ignored. ( BZ#591944)
* Previously, if the new_windows_always_on_top setting was activated, any new window was focused. This could have cause unwanted changes of window focus. With this update, if the new_windows_always_on_top option is activated, new windows of other than the currently-focused application are brought to the foreground; however, these windows are not focused. ( BZ#582769)
All metacity users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
