Summary0017583: MM Interferes with Automatically hidden taskbar
DescriptionIf the user has enabled Windows' "Automatically hide the taskbar' setting then MM blocks the functionality from working!

1 In Windows Taskbar settings, enable 'Automatically hide the taskbar in Desktop mode'
2 Maximize MM5
3 Move the cursor to the bottom of the screen
--> Taskbar fails to open!

In contrast maximizing other apps doesn't interfere with the Windows taskbar opening.

Note: I tested with a standard taskbar at the bottom of the screen, but user reported that the issue also occurs when the taskbar is at the left side.

Reopen Still able to replicate in 2317

It partially works:
1. Set Taskbar to not hide
2. Maximize MM5
3. Set taskbar to hide
4. MM5 resizes and normally works/shows when you move mouse to bottom of desktop
5. Restor non maximized MM window -> Maximize again
6. Taskbar do not Show when you move mouse.

I can replicate even more easily:
1 Set Taskbar to hide
2 Run MM5, maximize, move cursor to taskbar
--> fails to open
3 Run firefox, maximize, move cursor to tasbar
--> taskbar opens

The workaround is to reboot the machine (restarting explorer.exe can solve the problems, but it can have the side effect of temporarily losing items from the system tray).

Pushing to 5.0.1, since a complete fix isn't obvious.
