Yes, this is an (IMO) annoying misfeature of metacity. 

I think the intent is to get the window out of your way faster, but the
practical effect is increased confusion for even sophisticated users;
even when you don't lose windows, more stuff is moving around so it
makes the desktop feel less stable.)

(It works especially bad for acroread, but then the fact that the
close button closes the document in acroread, not the window, is
crack anyways.)
