I still don't know why it happened.  After some doing I managed to get
the window back, but that windows get arbitrarily get moved off the
display shouldn't happen at all.

It says KDE Plasma Version 5.27.10 in the settings.

Ok that's a really long explanation, and it's not what I'm talking
about.  I hope I can attach a screenshot.

What I'm talking about is having both the checkboxes enabled for
Maximize and Tile at the same time.  Both of them are for when
dragging windows.  That doesn't make sense: The windows that are being
dragged can only be maximized or tiled, not both at the same time.

And I still don't know what the Behaviour thing is about.  That whole
thing needs quite a lot of work before it might become understandable
by users.
