Isn't this just an issue of the MatchBox window manager. It generally
prefers to fullscreen windows and doesn't allow secondary windows to be
moved or resized by the user, at least on Maemo. Obviously a user can
move and resize windows on a regular GNOME desktop.

That seems to be a fairly sane decision by the Maemo UI people in order
to simplify the UI. It might not be to everyone's liking.
