      Description

      0.4.12-RC-46-g317ca41 gcc dbg lin is affected.

      Somewhen around 0.4.12dev'ing we implemented analogon to 'MS Aerosnap', that allows you to snap a Window to the screen borders via Winkey+Cursor key.

      That logic should never affect the taskbar, but it does erroneously, leading to all kinds of misbehavior.
      0.4.12-RC-46-g317ca41__affected.webm
      0.4.12-RC-46-g317ca41__affected.log

      Reproduction steps
      -uncheck the checkmark that 'fixes the taskbar' to be able to freely move it
      -drag it to the right screen border, you will most likely see the first malfunction here, as it often 'wants' to expand to 50% screen size
      -when now moving it by pressing Winkey+arrow-up, Winkey+arrow-left, winkey+arrow-right, winkey+arrow-down you will soon enter a state where it's getting totally impossible to interact with the taskbar anymore. Only way out is killing the explorer

      My recommendation
      Make sure, Aerosnap is ineffective for the taskbar 'Window'
