Moving application towards panel ends in full screen window

Devuan ASCII and Mate desktop with LightDM: I have found an annoying feature of the new Mate 1.16 vs Mate 1.8. Whenever I move a window around on the screen to position it, and the window hits the top panel, the window is blown up to full screen covering everything else.

What are the keywords to search for disabling this feature (for me its actually a bug)?

Thanks, rolfie

If you're using xfce, that wonderful magic is hidden on the "accessibility" tab of the "window manager tweaks" setting; the option to "automatically tile windows when moving towards the screen edge".

I have not experienced this behavior on my mate/ascii/slim install. Other then suggesting slim I have nothing.

Are you using marco as window manager? I use marco but do not have mate-tweak installed which allows some other choices with window control I have no experience with.
