Ah, VirtualBox, that could explain it, at least for the guests. If
Alt+click is intercepted by the host's window manager, VirtualBox guests
don't get to see those events. You would have to make sure that both WMs
use different mouse_modifiers.

For example, keep the guests at the default <Alt> and on the host run
gconftool-2 -s /apps/metacity/general/mouse_button_modifier -t string "<Super>"
Host at default and "<Ctrl>" for the guests appears to work too.

Anyway, Alt+drag was just meant to be a band-aid. The latest Onboard has
window decoration disabled by default (by coincidence), which makes it
harder to maximize in the first place. If you'd like to try it, Oneiric
proposed has a slightly outdated version, testers welcome.
