Thanks for your feedback @seb128 :)

The use-case in Bug #2064646 seems a bit different though, as this seems
to affect the window that currently has focus. In the issue I reported,
Settings has been in the background for several hours/days before
suddenly initiating the faulty snapping action.

I'll try with the SRU and let you know the outcome. Please note that the
issue is very random, sometimes it happens a couple times a day, but I
actually had to wait for several weeks for it to happen again so that I
could take a screenshot and file a bug report.

** Description changed:

  ## Relevant information
  
-  * GNOME Settings version: 46.0.1
-  * Operating system (distribution): Ubuntu 24.04 LTS
-  * Screenshots
-    - Screencast of the visual cue disappearing after the Settings window is 
dragged, see Screencast_from_2024-06-23_21-06-32.webm
-    - I also have a screenshot of the faulty snapping visual cue, but the bug 
report is limited to one attachment

  ## Steps to reproduce:
  
  1. Open GNOME Settings
  2. I personally keep it open on the Wi-Fi settings pane, not sure if this is 
relevant to this bug though
  3. Leave Settings open in the background, i.e. do not interact with the 
window anymore
  4. Open some other apps
-     - In case this is relevant, these are some of the apps I use when this 
issue happens: GNOME Files, GNOME Terminal, Firefox, LibreOffice, Sublime Text
+     - In case this is relevant, these are some of the apps I use when this

  5. Navigate between the apps (e.g. using Ctrl-Tab)
  6. At this point, I can't tell for sure, but it seems that the issue usually 
happens right after coming back from full-screen display
-     - e.g. watch a Youtube video in full-screen on Firefox, open a document 
in full-screen (Ctrl-Shift-J) in LibreOffice
-     - Unfortunately, I don't remember if that was the case every time this 
issue happened (it's very rare and random), it could be that it also happened 
after navigating from an app that was only maximized –sorry for the lack of 
precision here

  7. Very rarely (i.e. after navigating between apps for several 
hours/days/weeks), an visual cue (i.e. a transparent orange rectangle) is 
displayed over all the open windows indicating that a window is currently being 
snapped on one of the corners
-     - This is the same visual cue that can be seen when dragging a window 
towards a corner with the mouse, before releasing the mouse click
-     - To be clear, no snapping action has been initiated by dragging a window 
towards a corner
-     - The visual cue never disappears from the screen, even when navigating 
between windows (e.g. with Alt-Tab)
-     - Even though the visual cue is visible, it's not clear which window is 
attempting to snap
-     - In particular, it's clearly not the window that has focus which is 
being snapped since dragging it with the mouse doesn't affect the visual cue
-     - The window that has focus still responds to input, e.g. from keyboard

  8. Navigate to the Settings window (e.g. with Alt-Tab)
  9. Start to drag the Settings window with the mouse
  10. The visual cue disappears as soon as the dragging action starts
-     - To be clear, this only happens when dragging the Settings window, i.e. 
dragging any other window doesn't make the visual cue disappear, which makes me 
think that this bug is specific to Settings
