Description Vladimir Benes 2013-07-04 07:32:53 UTC
Description of problem:
When I wanted to use vertical two monitor setup (external LCD and laptop below) I found out that I cannot place windows behind top bar so this allows me just to place them only to that part of the larger monitor that is not behind top bar (see attachment).
If I place top bar to the upper screen the same problem is with window list. I cannot place apps below it.

I can move there with mouse but placing windows into those areas is forbidden.

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create two screen vertical setup with one screen smaller top bar to the bottom one firefox just above top bar

Actual results:
impossible, or possible just in the part that is larger than the below screen's resolution.

Expected results:
should be possible

Additional info:
when top bar is on the upper screen, I can see a part of notification bar always showing on the bottom screen
