Bug Description

When snapping a window to occupy half of the screen size available the effect (the golden colored rectangle) does not disappears when dragging a window to one of the screen lateral sides and then dragging the same window to the button (the window must be dragged to the button always in "contact" with the screen edges). I've attached a video of how this happens for better understanding. see video in comment4

To reproduce this bug just drag a window to either left or right side of the screen and let the grid overlay effect appear, then drag the window to to button of the screen always having the window the closest possible to the screen edge (else the grid overlay effect will disappear), I attached a video of how to reproduce the bug but I think the frame rate I selected is too fast I'll make a newer one.
