Bug Description

clean zesty install, unity8 deb based session

to repro,
install libertine-manager-app via terminal, reboot
push on left edge to reveal app drawer
search for "Text editor" which is gedit
launch gedit
resize the window after launch

note: chrome snap didn;t seem to have this problem, so it's only some apps it seems

Yeah this has been a pain point for some time. But it's just a Unity8 bug, not a problem in the Mir demo servers. Duplicate of bug 1649662
