Left/right click the maximize button doesn't maximize the window.  That 
portion of the screen along the bottom, where a panel was, but is no 
longer, isn't covered by the window.

screenshot (sorta):


The window, signified by the "x", covers most of the screen.  However, 
the bottom portion of the monitor, signified by the ".", isn't covered by 
the window.  Why?
