[Bug 907572] [NEW] Resize shadow shows in Compiz Viewport switcher but is inconsistent


Public bug reported:

This applies to my 11.10 with the latest proposed updates as of

In the "Expo" view for the viewport switcher of Compiz (desktop wall
display) you can drag windows via mouse to different viewports.

When moving the mouse to the edges of the screen while "holding" a
window the orange resize overlay box is displayed. This will work for
the left and right edges and place the dragged window in either half of
the selected new workspace. It will not work for the top edge of the
screen to maximize the window.

The workspaces are selected when the mouse moves over the representation
in the desktop wall. I use 6 workspaces in 3x2 columns so the window
will only resize on either the first, third, fourth or sixth workspace
(since those are the left or rightmost workspaces in the top / bottom

Either the resize overlay should not be displayed at all while desktop
wall is displayed or have some consistent functionality that I can
actively select ANY desired workspace and place a properly resized
window on it (this includes the now non-functional maximize).
