I don't know if this is a bug or 'feature' (sadly hoping that it's the former) but when I minimize the last application, I cannot restore it just by clicking its launcher icon. This small screencap shows what's going on : screencap

Do I have to click on the desktop every time I want to restore the last minimized application? Or is it a mis-configuration from my part?

That is a bug, and there are updates for Unity just around the corner. It'll be available in a few days, I think. Hopefully, that'll fix it.

Is there a launchpad bug or something that I can follow for updates on this issue? – Gdebat Oct 24 '11 at 23:04
I don't have a link. Sorry. But the update may have landed, so check for it. – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Oct 25 '11 at 0:59
Update: Still no fix available on Oneiric. Pity as this is the single thing that keeps annoying me crazy in Unity. – Gdebat Dec 22 '11 at 13:40
