I can confirm this, but I'm not sure it's xfwm fault, it seems that the
panel placement will greatly influence that. Basically when there's a

But yeah, afaict, it only happens in a vertical screens placement with
an horizontal panel between them (wether on the bottom of the top screen
or on the top of bottom screen).
