Vertical maximisation causes windows to swap heads
Binary package hint: metacity
It seems that asking Metacity to maximise a window vertically can make it swap heads in a dual-head setup.
I'm using xrandr1.2 dual-head with two side-by-side screens. The left hand screen is 1050 pixels high (but with a single 24 pixel high top panel), the right hand one 1024 pixels high. Selecting a non-maximised window on the left screen and hitting the "vertical maximise" hotkey results in the window being moved to the left-most region of the right hand screen and being vertically maximised.
This is in some way related to the non-existence of panels on the second head; when I add an empty panel to the top of the second head the maximise behaviour on the left-hand head matches that of the right-hand head.
