[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#583652: xfwm4: Opening of gvim windows is out of the screen partially (bottom part)

Package: xfwm4
Version: 4.6.2-1
Severity: normal


When opening a gvim windows, the bottom part is out the screen which is
cumbersome to use the integrated command line.
The behavior appear only 4.6.2-1. I downgrade xfwm4 to 4.6.1-1 and the bug goes
away. Still the bug can be in vim because it seems to work with others

Step to reproduce the problem.
1/ Open a terminal (xfce4-terminal).
2/ Increase the windows terminal size because the size of the windows gvim
seems related to the size of the terminal.
3/ Move the terminal in the up of the screen to ensure the gvim windows will be
open in the bottom of the screen.
4/ Launch gvim from the terminal
5/ Bottom of gvim windows is hidden.

Note: I attached a screenshot of the bottom of my screen. On the left the gvim
windows cut. On the middle the terminal. On the right a standard full gvim
