Bug Description

When I run Gimp under Unity, the leftmost window goes behind the left Unity sidebar. This beahviour is consonant with the fact than maximized screens seem to lose one or two pixels to the left and sometimes Firefox doesn't get to properly go fullscreen (getting crunched in the Unity "Desktop").
Maybe it is reporting wrong window gemotry, I don't know. And I know it is too soon to report bugs, but maybe it is helpful.

Thanks for testing out Unity. Do you mean that the leftmost window is partially blocked by the launcher sidebar by a couple of pixels (same as maximized), or is it opening behind the launcher entirely? A screenshot would be most useful :)

The maximizing issue and the Gimp issue are two different things that I suspect are related.
Sending some screenshots, one of a freshly opened Gimp and two comparing the leftmost part of firefox when unmaximized versus maximized. My suspiction is that we're losing 2 or 3 columns of pixels when maximizing.

Okay, great, I see what you mean.

The maximizing issue should be pretty easy to fix, seems like we haven't synced the size of the 'panel area' in the window manager and what we're drawing.

The second issue is going to need some work, it would seem that Mutter should automatically avoid the left panel when opening windows, I'm not sure why that isn't just working. Will investigate.

Confirm the Gimp not fitting the window properly. Can this be related to the background sizing problem? Bug

My pixels are dissapearing on the right hand side (mine) of screen. Example of Chromium dissapearing under the scroll bar.

behavior is not consistent in Firefox. It sometimes loses rows of pixels on the right, next the left, next screen does not fit and I have a bottom horizontal scrollbar.

I see what you say. When I said I was losing pixels, it was from the entire window, from the frame itself. But I confirm your observation of losing webpage rendered area to the right side.

I've pushed a branch with a fix for this bug (see "related branch"). But looking at the commit-history of plugin.vala with commit 185.1.3 on 3.3.2010 from Gordon, this -1 of the width of the left strut-bar was added. I wonder what reverting this could cause. Sofar I've not encountered any regressions with my fixed branch.
