i just opened a random program, held ALT and dragged the window so it's
top bar touches the top of my screen (yes, i have a top panel too).
clicked ALT+F3 to access the right-clik-menu of the top bar, special
application settings, ticked size and position, chose "forced" in the
drop-down menu, and clicked ok, close the program, and started it again,
it started right on top, with the tip of it hidden behind the panel.
