maximized window extends beyond screen area 0.92 (bug?)

Brynn
Hi Friends,
I almost posted a bug report on this, but on 2nd thought, maybe it should be
discussed whether it's a bug or not.

I'm not sure if this is going to be an Inkscape bug, or something about Windows
os.  But I've never seen this in any other program, and I never noticed this in
Inkscape before 0.92.

When the Inkscape window is maximized, a small strip of all 4 edges of the
window extend past the edge of the screen.  Screenshot:

It particulary is a problem for the bottom edge for me.  That's because I keep
my taskbar auto-hidden.  So if my mouse strays to the bottom, the taskbar comes
up, and then I can't even see the status bar at all. Then I have to wait for it
to go back down.

So for example, if I want to use the zoom field and spinbox in the bottom-left
corner, it's really hard to do. If I want to use the Style Indicator in the
bottom-left, you can see that the bottom of almost half of "Stroke:" is beyond
the edge.  And "Fill:" is overlapping the palette scrollbar.

Compare that to the....I guess it's called restore size window.  You can see
that all of "Stroke:" is showing, and there's even some space below that, like a
buffer, before the edge of the window.

In the maximized window, you see the toolbar buttons and snap control bar
buttons are justified to the edge of the screen, with no space between them and
the screen.  But in the restore size, you can see there's a buffer there, before
the edge of the window.

The top, left and right edges don't cause me any touble.  But the bottom edge is
problematic.

Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, and this is a 15 inch laptop screen, non-touch, lcd, 1366
x 768 resolution.

Should be reported?

Thanks,
brynn

I forgot to say, something similar happens when I open the Export PNG dialog.
