Bug Description

Binary package hint: gramps

Ubuntu 10.10 netbook.

I was expecting the window to fit within the dimensions of the window and while hitting F11 have the full space. I have reported in in Gramps where you can find most of the screen shots and reporting conversation.
As a reference:
firefox: file, edit, view, ... menu is not on the top loosing what I belive is called screen real estate. F11 works fine.
Rythom box does show the bar on the top. included in the top bar. Terminal does it fine as well.

Sometimes the top pannel becomes transparent. (which I think is pretty cool) but then it goes away. .

Yes sorry, i'm getting to know this. Firefox, ooo, and others do not dock properly and have already been reported. But if you see the screenshot attached you can see that in the case of gramps the failiure is slightly different: there is an empty dpace across the top and left of the maximuzed window.

This is caused by the maximised window's size being too large for the screen. It ends up not being decorated (urgh!). I'm keeping this bug as we'll surely run into it for the natty version of Unity.

  * New upstream release.

   - When a menu is triggered from Alt+key, app name stays visible on panel
     (LP: #691765)
   - show the launcher on <Super> KeyPress, this will be needed when the
     shortcut will be implemented if we are in intellihide mode
   - Make sure an underscore is correctly placed under the corresponding
     accelerator-key. (LP: #683427)
   - Adding a dummy --replace option for compatibility reason (LP: #692569)
   - Compiz crashed with SIGSEGV in CompWindow::id() (LP: #694945)
   - Tooltip text not vertically centered (LP: #697791)

     (LP: #696780)
   - Mousewheel support for indicators (LP: #681428)

   - Include manpages, and make them translatable. (LP: #684896)

     applications, initial window size.
     It fixes also some bugs, like maximized window on first map not
     undecorated (LP: #667009, #669716, #693779, #691741)
   - Update libunity to conform to latest GIO VAPI breakage (LP: #679964)
   - Initial unity-atk module implementation (LP: #701680)

    - needs latest and greatest from dee
    - add libatk1.0-dev build-dep
  * CMakeList:
    - distro-patch to avoid building tests right now as building them is failing
      with the current vala/gir stack. THIS NEED TO BE REMOVED.
  * debian/rules:
    - don't --fail-missing as we don't want to install the vapi yet. The gir
      package will come next week.
  * debian/unity-common.install:
    - install the manpages
  * debian/libunity3.symbols:
    - updated
