Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu precise (development branch)
Release: 12.04

  Installiert: 1:7.6+10ubuntu1

When a window is dragged on it's window top bar, the window cannot be moved outside of the screen (or into a deadzone in a multi-monitor-setup).
However when a window is dragged using the alt+drag (somewhere inside the window), the window can be moved outside those bounds. This can lead to some unexpected results, for example when a large window is moved from a bigger screen onto a smaller one, it is to large and doesn't fit. If one tries then to maximize it, it is maximized on the big screen again instead of the small one.

I would expect the same behaviour indipendent on the chosen drag-method. (Window always stays inside screen bounds)
