Bug Description

Steps to reproduce

1. Drag window up to the panel and drop it so that it is maximized
2. Drag the window down, sometimes it will go to 0x0
3. Drag the window up and down, sometimes it will go offscreen

Testcase:

Dragging windows and up and down to the panel and back should not make them jump around the screen rapidly
