Bug Description

When a program is full screen, reduce the distance that the window bar must be dragged down for to restore it.

Details:

It it possible to make a program be fullscreen by draging its windowbar to the top of the screen. Then, an transparent orange rectangle appears indicating that the window can be made fullscreen.

The opposite is harder to discover/use: dragging (click and holding) the taskbar (catching it only betwen the end of the menubar and the beginning of the indicator icons) down does not seem to do anything.
One has to drag the mouse down, with nothing actually being dragged (no window moved, no indication of anything happening) until finally the program window stops beeing fullscreen and follows the mouse.

Desired resolution:
 - The window should snap back to the restored state as soon as the cursor is 25px below the top bar.
