Bug Description

[ Impact ]

GNOME applications that use client-side decorations can't be resized on Unity. I think it's because the frame extents hint is not supported.

gnome-clocks and gnome-tweak-tool are two apps in the archive that have this problem.

[ Test Case ]

Run one of the abovementioned applications. Their windows should be resizable.

[ Regression Potential ]

Any modifications to the Unity desktop shell could potentially introduce new crashes or lockups.

[ Other Info ]

The Unity SRU fix for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS was cherry-picked from upstream Unity, where it has been in production use in Ubuntu "Vivid Vervet" dev release for some time without apparent regression.

It seems to me that these CSD apps aren't resizable anywhere except for Gnome Shell.

Follow-up: it turned out that these CSD apps are resizable in Cinnamon, at least in version 2.2.
