Description: I get some sort of bug with my XFCE 4.10 now that some windows would move randomly when I ether click or select some text in any of the software. This is very weird bug, I never had this issue in XFCE 4.8 before. This started to happen when I've installed XFCE 4.10. I've even installed everything fresh, and bought a new mouse. Still same issue.

Steps to reproduce: This can't be reproduced always, this happends randomly. Maybe some one else have this issue too, please explain in comments.
This task depends upon

I've seen this happen with Rhythmbox, but it occurs rarely.

We'll have to find a way to reproduce the issue on demand, in order to report it upstream.

Yeah well I don't use rhythmbox, I do use gedit and this happend to it a lot. So the issues might be in XFCE or XServer it self.

I believe this is the upstream report for this issue:

I have applied the patch in xfwm4 4.10.0-2; can you please confirm that the issue is fixed for you as well?

I'm the upstream reporter and can confirm that the patch is resolving this annoying issue.
