I use CTRL+ALT and the left and right arrow keys to switch back and forth between multiple virtual desktops. Previously, switching back and forth would bring the focus back up to whatever application I had on that screen. However, the focus does not change when I switch screens, the focus stays on the previous screen.

Ex: I have Gedit on my right screen and Chrome on my left. I have Gedit up, and use Ctrl+Alt+Left to switch to Chrome. The focus stays in Gedit and does not switch to Chrome. If I start typing, the text goes into Gedit (which is on my right virtual desktop). I have to click inside Chrome to get focus. ..

I have Googled this and nothing has helped. The problem seemed to fix itself yesterday, but then I went and rebooted. I have a feeling it is an issue/setting inside Compiz because it works fine in Unity2D (using Metacity).
