Invoking Show Desktop (via the applet or Super+D) hides my conky windows in a way that makes them impossible to restore. This is somewhat paradoxical, since I would like to use Show Desktop to look at my conky windows.

My conky window settings:

own_window yes
own_window_type normal
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

(current cinnamon master)

Update: OK, it is possible to bring the conky window back by invoking Show Desktop again, but only if no other window has been activated in the meantime.

Same here. Neither normal nor desktop value for own_window_type work correctly when Show Desktop is called.

cinnamon 1.6.7, nemo 1.1.2 on Ubuntu 12.04.
