[Bug 840665] [NEW] Workplace switcher allows windows to be placed behind the top bar


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Ubuntu 11.04

When dragging windows around in workplace switcher, the top bar is not
visible in any of the four squares. Because of this, windows can be
dragged around so that their titlebars are where the top bar usually is
on the desktop (top bar being the one with the ubuntu button and the
power menu etc). This has the consequence that, once the user comes out
of workplace switcher mode, they cannot access the window controls nor
move it by dragging, as the window's title bar is hidden behind the
desktop top bar. Obviously you can hold down ALT or just go back into
workplace switcher to move the window back into the middle of the
desktop, but it still makes the system look less polished and
professional when this sort of thing can happen - as usually it is
impossible to drag a window further up than the top bar allows.
