[Bug 1287427] [NEW] new windows initially placed partly outside workspace


Public bug reported:

Ubuntu 14.04 trusty, compiz 1:0.9.11+14.04.20140218-0ubuntu1. Four
workspaces configured in a 2x2 grid.

To reproduce: Start several applications with non-fullscreen windows,
e.g. gnome-terminal. Once there are several of these windows, compiz
will create new ones overlapping existing windows.

Expected result: All windows not larger than the workspace should be
placed entirely within the workspace.

Problem: New overlapping windows' lower and right borders will be beyond
the lower and right edges of the workspace. This hides parts of the
windows and messes with Alt+Tab in other workspaces.

Cause: Windows are being placed up to 2 pixels too far to the right and
29 pixels too far down. This corresponds to the size of the window
border: 1 pixel left, right, and bottom, and 28 pixels top. So it looks
like the positioning code is not taking into account the border when
placing the windows.
