Did you try that?  What happened?

I've just had a conversation with some devs, on IRC.  A couple of them 
confirmed that they see the same.  The Maximise option does work when you 
change resolution locally - I tested it with krandrtray - but there is a 
strong suspicion among the devs that the problem is caused by NX, which 
handles screen resolution differently.  They haven't any answers, I'm afraid.  
Both are simply adjusting it with the Maximise button and living with it.

It doesn't look hopefuly for the future, then.  This isn't something that a 
simple bug fix is going to help.  Sorry.
