Can't maximize to laptop monitor

Bug #993902 reported by Lalo Martins on 2012-05-03
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
unity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I have two monitors, the laptop's built-in screen and an external one. After the Precise upgrade (from beta to final release), I can no longer maximize windows to the laptop monitor; no matter how I do it (maximize button, keyboard shortcut, drag the window to the panel), the window gets maximized to the other monitor.

I can reproduce this *only* with Chromium windows, though... so no clue if it's Compiz, or Chromium, or something in my configuration. (After this started happening, I tried using “place” to force it in the laptop monitor, but while that does the right thing for new windows, it doesn't change the behaviour when maximizing.)
