gnome-terminal doesn't return to its original size when unsnapping from the side of the screen

Bug Description

If you snap a Terminal window to the side of the screen, and then drag it away with the mouse, it changes back to its original width, but its height remains as that of the screen, so that you end up with an unusually tall window.

This happens if you drag it away, or click the, er, "maximize" button, but not if you unsnap it with Ctrl-Super-Left/Right.

This is on an up-to-date version of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

(A similar problem occurred on a fresh 16.04.0 install or LiveCD, where the window would retain the full screen dimensions on un-maximizing. That has been fixed now, but this one is still a problem.)

I have the same issue with `gnome-terminal`, but also other applications, like `gnome-system-monitor`, on Ubuntu 16.10, so this might be a more widespread issue.
