Description of problem:
If you drag a non-maximized window and make its upper part "disappear" underneath the top gnome panel, you won't be able to resize it by using the left mouse button on the window borders.
If you left click on any of the borders, you'll get the window system menu (that icon in the upper left corner of a decorated window) instead of the standard resize tool.
Note that it doesn't happen with the lower panel. So I would guess it has something to do with the title bar/system menu being underneath the panel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Move part of non-maximized window underneath the upper gnome panel
2. Try to resize it using the mouse
3. You get the system menu
Expected Results: Should have been able to resize the window

Bug still present in FC5T3 (metacity-184.108.40.206.2006.02.17-2)
Well, this is the way upstream metacity behaves. Personally, I agree with you
and think it's the wrong behavior, but I am not going to patch around this issue
