Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

I'm not entirely sure, but I think this bug is caused by unity.

Screen configuration: Laptop connected to TV by HDMI (http://img860.imageshack.us/i/monitorconfscreen.png/)

Bug: When executing the command 'unity --replace' (to temporarily fix another bug in unity) the ability to maximize application windows won't work properly. They 'maximize' to a small area between my LCD screen and the TV. (Image: http://img580.imageshack.us/i/bugscreenshot.png/ )

EDIT: A temporary fix is checking the option to choose same image on both monitors, unplugging the HDMI cable and replugging it back again with the original settings.
