Here is my understanding of the mis-behaviour: 
 1. you need at least two monitors, with different resolutions
 2. open a resizable window on the smallest monitor (example: gedit)
 3. If the has a vertical (resp. horizontal) size bigger than the small monitor 
_and_ smaller than the big monitor, when you maximize it, it  is automatically 
moved to the big monitor (but its original size and position are still 
remembered in the small monitor). In other words, if the window size is so 
large that it doesn't fit in the big monitor it stays in the small monitor.

I'd say the expected behaviour is that the window is placed on the
monitor which has the largest intersection area with the window.
