Description Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 2008-05-13 13:30:18 EDT
Description of problem:
When I bind a "maximize_vertically" window keybinding to some key (say,
<Control><Shift>F10), and use this key on gnome-terminal or other apps (tried
also gconf-editor), it is maximized even behind the GNOME panel (which I have
near the bottom edge of the screen). When I hide and unhide this panel, the
terminal becomes maximized as expected, i.e.  aligned with the upper edge of the
manel. Subsequent vertical maximizations and unmaximizations then work as expected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Sometimes - more often on newly opened windows. I am not able to determine
exactly when this happens and when it doesn't.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a GNOME session with metacity as the window manager, have a panel at the
bottom edge of the screen.
2. Open gconf-editor and set
/apps/metacity/window_keybindings/maximize_vertically to "<Control><Shift>F10".
3. Start gnome-terminal.
4. Press <Control><Shift>F10 to maximize it vertically.
Actual results:
The terminal is maximized even behind the GNOME panel, having last few rows

Expected results:
It should be maximized only upto the upper edge of the panel.

Additional info:
I have also tried to add a "maximize vertically" button to the title bar (adding
"maximize_vertically" to the /apps/metacity/general/button_layout gconf key, but
it does not work (probably the button should be named differently).
