Sometimes, my desktop will get into a state such that when I click on a side (including bottom or top) of a window to resize it, then, in addition to being able to resize that edge (perpendicular to the direction of the edge itself), moving the mouse parallel to the side will cause the window to resize in the other direction as well.

In other words: I'm trying to resize horizontally by grabbing the right or left edge (and that works fine), but if I move my mouse vertically, the bottom of the window moves as well.

Similarly, if I grab the top or bottom edge, moving my mouse horizontally will resize the right edge.

Anyone know how to get out of that state, short of restarting?
