Bug Description

Binary package hint: metacity

I'm currently running with a dual-monitor setup, with one monitor above the other. Gnome has decided that the monitor at the top is the one to get the panels etc. If I have a window on the top display and tell it to maximise, the top of the window correctly ends up just below the panel at the top, however the bottom of the window goes below the bottom panel (presumably to the bottom of that screen). This isn't the behaviour I see when using dual side-by-side or a single monitor.

If it's relevant, I'm using nVidia's twinview thing.

I'm also seeing this bug, with and without compiz enabled.
Could this be related to [url=]bug 158169[/url]?
It's a different windowmanager, but the sympthoms are the same.
