Bug Description

I switch Sticky edges off in Display but it persists even though the settings stays set as Off.

It also makes it difficult to drag a window between monitor displays.

Bug persists in Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit 3.11.0-20-generic, gnome-control-center 3.4.2. In particular, sticky edges effect only shows up on one display edge, not on the other one.

As part of the big bug review for 16.04 LTS I have tested this on 15.10 and the bug is still there.
