Description of problem:
By doing maximize and fullscreen in the right sequence, metacity loses track of

that if you use fullscreen a lot, then this happens sometimes by mistake.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

respectively.  Then type:
