Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Compiz allows windows to be maximized horizontally by right clicking the maximize button and maximized vertically by middle clicking the maximize button.

When Unity detects a window is maximized it removes the title bar from the window and places it in it's panel. The problem is it's doing this for windows that are only maximized in one direction.

      package will come next week.
