Description Thomas Lübking 2013-02-04 01:32:41 UTC
A window with fixed position is not maximizable, so once this is evaluated, the maximization function takes a short exit.

This is not necessarily correct or obvious for partial maximization and / or a "0" position on the non fixed axis.

Possible resolution would be to allow maximization with constrained position (hardcoding NW or actually considering gravity)

Reproducible: Always

Permit maximization of windows with fixed position

A window can be "maximized" despite it's position is fixed.
Most obvioulsy for a corresponding of "0", but also in other
cases. The window can still be resized, some size is the
maximum one and there's no reason to prevent the shortcut of
this state.
