Description of problem:
When having a remote connection. Having the Remote Viewer maximized and remote session does not take whole screen (there can be seen white edges). Dragging the window to map itself to the left or right side of a screen (equivalent of Super+Left or Super+Right shortcut). When I move outside of a remote machine`s screen (only left side) the screen indicates with the blue rectangle that it will map to the left side but upon release it maps to the right.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a Remote Viewer with a machine that has lower resolution than your local screen.
2. Open any application (terminal in my case).
3. Drag the window to the left side, and go over the edge of the remote machine screen.

Actual results:
The window is mapped to the opposite side of a screen.

Expected results:
The window is mapped to the correct side of a screen.

Additional info:
I suspect that once I go out of a screen the mouse release event is given to some default coordinates and that is why it is jumping to the other side.
I am not sure this even counts as a bug. So feel free to close if you deem this not worth dealing with.
