Package: xfwm4
Version: 4.10.1-2
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/xfwm4-tweaks-settings

I run Jessie in a VirtualBox VM on Windows 7.  I do Host-F
to go fullscreen, and then open some window and put it on
the right edge of the 16:9 screen.  When I do Host-F and
go back to regular 4:3 size screen in the VM window, the
window in xfce4 is way off on the right edge.  If resizing
triggered smart placement (like gnome3 does) it could
rearrange itself so the windows are on the screen.  Unless
I don't understand what smart placement is.  Then something
else should be done to move windows back where I can use
them and move them around without resizing them since all
I can see is the very edge of the window.
