Bug Description

I found this usability bug when I was without a mouse; if there is a maximized window open I should be able to move it onto another monitor with alt+F7 and the arrow keys.

I've just tried in intrepid, it works with compiz (+nvidia), but not with metacity.

Assuming that 9.04 is still close to 8.10, yes, it's still reproducible.
