windows snap to other, invisible windows


Description Hans-Peter Klett 2005-06-01 16:38:21 CEST
When, for example, you have a terminal behind a maximized browser, and you move
another terminal around, the latter snaps to the first terminal, even though it
is hidden.  Increasing the window snap margin makes this more apparent.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open one small window.
2. Open a maximized window.
3. Open another small window and move it around.
Actual Results:  
The third window snaps to completely invisible windows.

Expected Results:  
Windows should only snap to at least partly visible window borders.

This is not really a bug, it's more of a design decision. Computing what edges
are truely visible for every window, at every single move of a window would
waste a lot of resource.

None of the WM I know do that either.

Bug #983
