As far as I understood the problem: 

A user told his setup when giving presentations:
latop screen with resolution A,
presentation screen with resolution B,
clone mode,
Nvidia card with drivers version 190
Xfce with Xfwm4
using nvidia-settings

Now sometimes maximizing windows works with respect to the display activated as the main or front display, and sometimes it wouldn't, so he would manually resize them and move them to the proper positions. He thinks it might be related to having both Xfwm and Nvidia drivers. Not sure whether this also happened with other window managers as well.

Hope that explains Nvidia + Clone + Maximize + Xfwm :)
