[Bug 1303462] [NEW] [Regression] Window titlebars placed behind panel


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Windows with a height of (Display Height - Panel Height) get placed at y=0 (behind the top panel)
which means window titlebars are not reachable without alt-moving the window.
I assume this happens with windows that want to resize themselves if their height exceeds the display resolution.
Reproducable on my 1366x768 screen with LibreOffice and a Qt 5 desktop application I'm working on.

Use the Cntrl+SuperKey+Right or Left Arrow Key
This will resize your currently focused window to occupy the Right (Left) half of the screen. The Title Bar should now be visible, so you need to drag it and resize it at your prefered position. This will save the new position in place of the previously hidden state.
