Iconbox behavior different from panel

Took the time to look up the iconbox source, it seems like these lines 
handle the repositioning:


Therefore, only changing 0 to 2 and gdk_screen_width/height() to 
gdk_screen_width/height()-2 should be sufficient... I suppose other 
things (like, other such boxes) are solved similar...

By the way, what about making xfwm4, when maximizing the window, trully 
maximize it and not only resize as much as possible ? ie. when 
maximized, no possibility of resizing etc...

Anyway, great thing the xfce is and I'm glad I may use it :)
