Description of problem:
When turning VLC Media Player from maximized to fullscreen, panels stay covering it
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch vlc
2. Maximize it
3. Double click the video to fullscreen it
Panels cover full screen window
Panels go away, like when fullscreening from normal
Downstream (Fedora) bugtracker pointed me to fill this bug here against this component.
I can confirm this on Gentoo in 4.10 and 4.11, but only if "Don't reserve space on borders" isn't selected in the panel prefs, so there's the interaction. eg, it'd be ideal if yes, a maximized window reserved space with that selected, but the panel didn't overdraw a full-screen app.
See bug 8563; attachment 4960 fixes this issue. It has already been applied in Ubuntu (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xfwm4/+bug/1066535), but nobody seems to care upstream.
Yup, this is in fact the same issue as bug 8563. Marking as duplicate.
