A new Flyspray task has been opened.  Details are below. 

User who did this - cwl (couplewavylines) 

Attached to Project - awesome
Summary - tag highlight doesn't change
Task Type - Bug Report
Category - Tags
Status - Unconfirmed
Assigned To - 
Operating System - Linux
Severity - Low
Priority - Normal
Reported Version - 3.5.5
Due in Version - Undecided
Due Date - Undecided
Details - Using awesome 3.5.5, in Arch Linux, in VirtualBox

1. Start awesome, using default rc.lua from /etc/xdg/awesome/rc.lua
2. In tag 1, open a terminal
3. Switch to tag 2
4. Switch back to tag 1

The display switches back to Tag 1's contents, but Tag 2 remains highlighted. 
There's a little ghost of a highlight under tag 1. The taskbar also continues 
to show tag 2's contents (blank, in the case of the above example).
The tag and taskbar display can be temporarily corrected by opening another 
window or changing the layout.
Problem does not happen when switching between tags that have no open windows.

I first noticed this after updating to xorg-server 1.16, which I'm guessing has 
something to do with it.  When I updated my system that day, the following 
updates also happened:
cryptsetup (1.6.5-1 -> 1.6.5-2)
libdrm (2.4.54-1 -> 2.4.55-1)
libxfont (1.4.7-3 -> 1.5.0-1)
linux (3.15.5-2 -> 3.15.7-1)
virtualbox-guest-modules (4.3.14-1 -> 4.3.14-3)
libepoxy (1.2-2)
xorg-server-common (1.15.2-1 -> 1.16.0-5)
xf86-input-evdev (2.9.0-1 -> 2.9.0-2)
xorg-server (1.15.2-1 -> 1.16.0-5)
virtualbox-guest-utils (4.3.14-1 -> 4.3.14-2)

I also posted this in the Arch forums, one other person confirmed it.
