Maximized windows can't overlap the top 40 pixels on a Sam Linux desktop

Well, the subject line pretty much says it all. Even without a panel at the top, windows in the SAM Linux XFCE environment can't go over the top forty pixels at on the top bar. I've never had this quirk before, so I presume that the developers of this particular distro tweaked how windows can act in XFCE, maybe to fit in the wbar that comes nicely packaged with it. Anyway, how can I fix this?

In XFCE you define in the preferences the "margins" of the screen, where no maximized window will go. That's what is happening. Just change the preferences.
