Well, I guess, I was just confused by the naming of the option. Unless I
read the documentation (sorry, I should have done it before I posted), I would
never suspect something labeled "Window snapping size" is responsible for the
auto desktop switch. And so I found myself messing around with the option
called "Switch desktop at screen border" - which seemed to me more plausible.

So, I'm happy now,  but I'd suggest two things:

- find a more descriptive name or give some verbose tooltip 
- actually, the auto desktop switch has - from a user point of view -
nothing to do with a snapping size. I think those features should work (and also be
configured) independently.

(Should this already be in a newer version, please tell me)

Thank you a lot and enjoy your weekend,
