[Bug 1357922] [NEW] active shadow is visible underneath inactive shadow on inactive windows


Public bug reported:

I have shadows enabled both for active and inactive windows. Both of
white colour; active is 16 in radius, inactive is 8. There is a bug in
drawing inactive shadow on inactive window, because traces of active
shadow are still visible from underbeath the inactive shadow.

how to reproduce:
- open a window (regular window with borders and shadows enabled)
- click outside the window (for example, on desktop)
- the window becomes inactive, its border becomes inactive, inactive shadow is displayed, but traces of active shadow are still visible

Active shadow (or its traces) should not be visible on inactive windows

It doesn't happen all the time. Sometimes inactive window and its
shadows are displayed correctly, sometimes shadows are correctly
displayed only on a part of inactive window's border, as shown in
attached image.
