Bug Description

Windows that have some size constraints (i.e. can't be made smaller than their
original size) and don't have enough space on the screen on startup, loose
decorations when started on small screen.

Preconditions:
- screen resolution 800x600.
- a panel taking some space on the left (in my case - unity-2d launcher, always
shown).

I observed this problem for two applications: gnome-control-center and dejadup
in Ubuntu 12.04. It seems that metacity considers them maximized if they don't
have enough horizontal space on start.

There is a gconf metacity flag - show_maximized_titlebars - if set, then the
problem is gone, however the window can't be made fullscreen, as metacity seems
to consider it maximized already.

Changed in metacity:
importance: Unknown → Medium
status: Unknown → New
