Bug Description

Usability bug: when user moves a window to the top of the screen nothing happens until the mouse key is released. Then suddenly the window maximises.
Solution: window should maximise when user moves the window to the top panel immediately, not after releasing the left mouse button OR not at all (I prefer the latter, but most will probably prefer the former).

It's a usability bug because it confuses users. The orange indicator is not enough because it's hard to notice especially when the window already is quite big.
