Windows 7: Office 2007 & Aero Snap Problem

Office 2007 & Aero Snap Problem

Usually Iím viewing Office programs maximized and simply switch between widows, rather than viewing them next to each other because of my low screen resolution. Yet, today I needed to compare 2 documents next to each other.
Well, thereís the problem.

If any Office App is maximized, I canít seem to pull it down to move it. Exactly like it used to be with Chrome 1, but even Google managed to fix that in the 2.x builds.
If the windows are snapped to the left or right, thereís no problem unsnapping (do you actually call it that?^^) and dragging them.
Also, every other program works just fine with Aero Snap, when maximized. Iím simply wondering, since I wouldnít expect such a major glitch with MS Office.
So, am I missing something, or is anybody experiencing the same issue?

I just want to make sure itís not my own stupidity, before I send feedback to MS.

Thanks in advance!

I have the same issue. To return the document to its previous state (not maximized), I have to either click the maximize button or double click the title bar. This behavior occurs with Access, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. However, it works correctly with InfoPath, OneNote, and Publisher.
