Resizing of Spotify 0.9.4.183 window works correctly, but when clicking maximize button xfwm maximizes window only for split of the second, then reverts back to previous size. Works correctly in other window manager (metacity, kwin).
Can confirm that, I would assume though that it's the fault of the Spotify app.
Everything is fine with 0.9.11.27, I guess they fixed the problem.
Interesting, I'm using the same version (0.9.11.27.g2b1a638c), still, maximizing doesn't work as expected.
Pretty strange. Maybe I misunderstood the issue, here's two screenshot of my PC, the first one is Spotify not maximized, the second one is Spotify after I clicked on the "+" icon (maximize icon).

You're understanding the issue correctly, however, this simply doesn't work here.

Exact same output here.
Same issue here, with xfwm4 v4.11.4 and spotify 0.9.11.27
though I'm using a patched version, can be found in AUR as "xfwm4-titleless-dev".
I'll be trying reverting to the "regular" xfwm4 to check if the issue is there too.
I have noticed another thing: the maximize button has that strange split-second flicker, however if I drag the spotify window to the top of the screen, it's being maximized as it should be.
Same issue with xfm4 v4.10.1, without the drag-to-top part, 4.10 does not have that option AFAIK
Actually I can confirm that maximizing works now with Spotify 0.9.11.27g2b1a638c and xfwm4 4.11.2 on Xubuntu 15.04 (daily build).
Since I was previously testing with Xubuntu 14.04, it's possible that the bug was related to some component that Spotify is using and that has received a fix meanwhile...
