[Bug 751605] Re: Multi-monitor - Windows maximize on the wrong monitor


** Description changed:

+ [Test Case]
+ 1. Have a multi-monitor environment ready
+ 2. Open a terminal window
+ 3. Move the window to be in-between two monitors
+ 4. Maximize the window
+    -> Make sure the window gets maximized on the correct monitor - the one that has most of the window.
+ [Regression Potential]
+ Windows that are too big to fit a given screen can still get the window
+ maximized.
+ Original description:
  For windows maximizing on the wrong workspace, see bug 776435 instead.
  Binary package hint: unity
  I have a notebook, using it with an external monitor attached to it in a
  dual-screen setup (See attached screenshots, the little screen is that
  of the notebook, the large screen is that of the external monitor
  attached to the top of the notebook's screen.
  If I maximize windows, two things go wrong:
  1) the maximized windows always end up on the large screen, all the same if it was originally on the smaller one.
  2) their top window-frame-bar (containing the minimize-maximize-close buttons) ends up on the top of the small screen.
  See screenshots: Screenshot-1 is showing the situation before
  maximizing, Screenshot-2 shows the situation after maximizing.
  I am not 100% sure, but I guess this is only this way since my last
  natty update.
  Desired Solution:
  - When a user maximises a window, the window should always maximise on
  the the monitor that contains the majority of the window at the moment
  the user gives the maximise command.
