Here is a way to reproduce it 100% of the time.
1. Have the bigger monitor on the left, and have a window there that is
bigger in at least one dimension than the second monitor on the right.

2. Drag the window to the second monitor, and either first drop it there,
and then maximize it (by pushing the window border against the panel (a
correct maximize outline is shown), and let go, or by still dragging the
window push it against the panel (still showing the right maximize outline.

3. Release the mouse button.

The window should now be maximized on the smaller right monitor, but in
fact it maximized on the larger left monitor instead.
