Bug#320589: metacity: "breaks" maximize window with Xinerama

Package: metacity
Version: 1:2.10.3-1
Severity: normal

After the upgrade from 2.10.2 to 2.10.3 maximizing windows behaves
different and very disturbing when using a Xinerama setup.

Normally metaycity would maximize a window to the size of the screen the
window is on, but now the maximized window covers every screen of the
Xinerama setup, which is quite annoying (at least for me).

Downgrading to 2.10.2 brings back the old (preferred) behavior.
