XFCE 4.10: New window's top decorations hidden behind panel

There's no Wine on my PC, so the issue is not related to Wine.
I'm quite sure it has to do with the 'new window placement policy" of XFCE.
Is this policy hard-coded, or is there a configuration settings to change it?

I've had the same issue, but only with a Wine app - it may be a Wine
or DirectX issue in my case. But any solution offered, I'll be looking
at trying, because it's annoying to lose C&C Renegade's chrome.
