How can I reliably disable snapping windows? When I drag a window around by its titlebar and near the upper edge, it tints and wants to maximize if I let go of the mouse then (trying to park my app there, not cover the whole workspace!)
Until Unity becomes more productive for my work style I switched to cairo-dock with effects for now (which also is not without issues).
As the logged in user I have run
ccsm the Compiz manager and disabled Snapping Windows altogether, and verified many times. Doesn't seem to care. Haven't filed a bug rep yet as maybe there's some other setting I don't know about. Nothing else results in the CompizConfig search when I try snap or snapping. Any other ideas?
