[Bug 1348254] Re: Dragging window to resize is reversed after resizing with keyboard


I'm also experiencing the same bug on Linux Mint 17.2 that Kyle C.
reported above. It seems to mostly (if not only) affect the right edge
of the window and there does appear to be a connection with using the
system menu resize just like Kyle noted. Maybe I'll just stop using the
keyboard shortcut (Alt-Space + R) for a while and see if the problem

  Dragging window to resize is reversed after resizing with keyboard

Bug description:
    After right-clicking the titlebar of a resizeable window and selecting "resize," pressing the up arrow key to attach the cursor to the top edge of the window, resizing the window, and clicking or hitting enter to deselect the top edge, dragging the bottom edge of the window with the cursor no longer resizes the window in the proper direction.
    Using the mouse to select the top edge or using the right-click, rezise, move method on the bottom edge still produce the right behavior.  This happens in all applications that use resizable windows.  I'm reproducing this bug with the default unity on Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS

  I have attached a video demonstrating the bug.
