Never Hide Launcher Doesn't Push Window Over with Multiple Monitors

Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

I have two monitors set up with Unity (one on left, one on right, same resolutions). The launcher is on the right monitor. When "Hide Launcher" is set to "Never" under Ubuntu Unity Plugin with CompizConfig Settings Manager (CCSM), application windows on the right window that are maximized are behind the launcher, rather than next to it, making anything on the left side of the application completely inaccessible (by touch/mouse).

Workaround: If you would prefer the launcher to be on the left monitor, but don't know how to move it, then look at bug 742544.
