Bug Description

Some apps like "glxgears -fullscreen" do not use the full screen under Compiz/Unity. However Metacity and Gnome Shell do successfully enter full screen in this case.

It seems some apps try to enter full screen using just window size hints and not the fullscreen hint. I believe this is not uncommon, especially for non-gtk apps.
