Bug Description

[Impact]

The panel shadow is lost on the other screen.

[Test Case]

1. make sure you have a dual screen setup so that one display is over the other (didn't test the landscape setup)
2. open dash or HUD on the main monitor with super (or alt) key
3. note on the other screen

What happens:
the panel shadow is lost on the other screen.

What should happen:
the display without dash/HUD should stay unchanged

see the attached screenshot.

[Regression Potential]

None.

  * Check to see if the window is supposed to have decorations instead
    of the window actually being decorated when Undecorate() is called.
