Bug#586981: metacity: Indual screen mode, maximized windows appear under panel

I'm pretty sure this is a quite common problem already reported but couldn't manage to find an existing report. Sorry in advance for potential duplicate.
I'm using xrandr/gnome-display-properties to use my laptop together with an external secondary display.
I have two vertical panels on my main/primary (laptop's internal screen) on left and right edges.
When in dual-screen mode, maximized windows on this primary screen are overlapped (appear under) the right-most panel (which is then "in the middle" of the dual screen).
This is quite annoying, as I have to manually resize all windows so that they cover the full space between the 2 panels, but nevertheless aren't covered by the right panel.
I noticed a similar report for KDE in https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=167852 even though I doubt it uses the same technology exactly (maybe the same code after all, who knows).
Borrowing the diagram from the KDE report :
|P P|| |
|P 1 P|| 2 |
|P P|| |
So the Ps represent my panels, and the maximized windows will appear bellow the one in the middle (right-most of screen 1).
I hope this is more explicit with such diagram.
Thanks in advance.
