I am not quite sure how to answer this:

1. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 "Moronic Meerkat" that has had its GUI 
hacked about a bit
insofar as I have an AVANT WINDOW NAVIGATOR set up rather like the Mac 
OS X dock
along the bottom of my desktop, and a DOCKY on the right-handside of my 
screen (for Windows
stuff running under WINE).

I am writing this using Mozilla Thunderbird -

If I maximise my Thunderbird window it takes DOCKY into account and does not
maximise so bits of the window are "behind" it. However, Thunderbird 
does NOT take
AVANT into account and does maximise "behind" it.

2. If I maximise a LiveCode stack it behaves exactly like Thunderbird,

     It doesn't go completely bonkers and do such things as vanishing 
under the PANEL.

3. This is the situation for 4.5 dp-4, Studio 4.0 and RunRev 2.2.1; 
which means that it is
     a long-running situation.

This would suggest to me, that, on my machine at least, that the problem 
lies with Avant Window Navigator
and not with LiveCode.
