This means the app tracking isn't working. Try something like this in
the looking glass and tell me what it says (make sure that all your
xterm windows have "xterm" somewhere in the title!):

Shell.WindowTracker.get_default().get_window_app([x for each(x in
global.get_window_actors()) if
(x.meta_window.get_title().indexOf("xterm") >
