maximized window larger than screen width

There is something strange with my Gnome 2.30.2 desktop on Gentoo Linux. Everytime I maximize window, the dimension of the maximized window is larger than screen width it self.
Any idea how to solve my problem?

I changed the resolution to 1024x800 then back to 1028x800 and the problem is solved.

I even didn't think before that change resolution may solve the problem. Absolutely simple solution.

Maybe that problem exist because of compiz configuration.

Thanks mahi_nix
