Better to separate steps for Unity and Classic Mode. This is documented is the spec: "As with all Xkb events, XkbStateNotify events are reported to all interested clients without regard to the current keyboard input focus or grab state." [http://www.x.org/releases/X11R7.6/doc/libX11/specs/XKB/xkblib.html] Trying to drag the window causes the window to slowly slide to the right along the panel till it goes off the screen and finally pops free. But it does work.

Since Cinnamon isn't using Compiz, I can't use the suggested workaround.

Also, if I turn off compiz, then I can use the mouse just fine in fullscreen mode. http://zenlinux.org/compiz-not/compiz-not-working-in-ubuntu-12-04.html Sometimes, entering, leaving and entering fullscreen mode in quick succession solves the redrawing problem, but keeps the resolution the same as it was in windowed mode.
