When I use the "Put Right" function of the Compiz grid plugin to maximize a window on the right half of a desktop, a two-pixel stripe of the window ends up on the next virtual desktop just to the right. The window then appears on two desktops simultaneously, which is a bit inconvenient to handle. "Put Left" works fine, interestingly.

I run 11.10 with unity. Any idea if that is a known bug?

The Compiz Grid plugin has some difficulties with window geometry and especially right side edges. There are a few similar bug reports:

And for a collection: Launchpad Bug #774986

I can confirm that I also get a 2px overlay on my right monitor by „putting a window right” on the left monitor.

Thanks, that answers my question. I'll just look at the bug reports for further information. – wintercorn Dec 8 '11 at 12:55
Disable auto-hiding the Launcher, at Settings -> Apperance -> Behavior. – ciastek Nov 29 '12 at 8:38
