this is true, i've noticed this a few times, when a window seems to be
"maximazed" but its just big, i don't find this particularly annoying since
the functionality of a seeminlgy maximazed and a trully maximized window
are basically the same any way. But it would be nice if the where a visual
cue in the window decoration, beside the very thine line around the window
that maximing hides, that a window is not occupaying all the available
