[Bug 1287427] Re: new windows initially placed partly outside workspace


** Description changed:

- Ubuntu 14.04 trusty, compiz 1:0.9.11+14.04.20140218-0ubuntu1. Four
+ 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.
+ placed entirely within the workspace, as in Ubuntu 13.10.
  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.
