I had this issue on my todo list for creating bug reports for. I am using
xfwm version 4.6.1-1 on debian unstable. And when I have a window that is
located tot the top of the screen, it is very user unfriendly to resize
the windows instead of moving the windows when moving the cursor to the
top of the border and left clicking on it. Maybe this feature is only
usefull when the windows is not located at the edge of a screen size.

I would like to discus the removal of this behavior or change the defaults.

Best regards,
