[Bug 1106788] [NEW] Compiz, maximize vertically if screen edge hit, places window-controls out of reach


Public bug reported:

When you have multiple windows of a same application opened (eg.
LibreOffice, Gimp, ...), one of the windows is always repositioned with
the window-controls out of each => each time you have to resize the
window manually and then reposition the window, so to get control of the
window-controls. I could avoid this behavior by switching the tag
"maximize vertically if screen edge hit" off. The window-controls seems
to be placed far above the top of the screen or if the size of the
window matches the vertical size of the screen then the controls are
hidden behind the top panel.
