It's not even the multi-monitor part that bothers me, it's the fact that 
when I place a window at the edge of the screen, something I do very 
frequently, instead of snapping the window to the corner/edge, it takes 
the whole window hostage and maximizes along the corner, edge, or the 
entirely of the screen.

You can imagine how frustrating this can be when the window is a (what's 
supposed to be) 80x25 terminal or video player window, or even if you 
just want to stack multiple windows along the edge of the screen. The 
annoyingness is compounded if using a trackpad since the reduced 
accuracy makes it hard to get near the edge without activating the 
"software knows best" magic.

Anyway, I was just pointing out how insanely annoying at least one 
person finds this behaviour :)  If it can be easily disabled, it's not 
even an issue.

Pfft, it's better than mine and I'm a native English speaker :)
