This is actually an older bug, it already existed back in GNOME 2
already. It usually occurs when moving the window to the top such
that leaves the visible area and the title bar is no longer visible.

If you then try to resize the window by clicking on the corner, the
window menu appears instead of the resize arrow. The MATE developers
are aware of the issue and I think they wanted to fix it with
the next release.

Interestingly, I can reproduce it with MATE Terminal but not with
Icedove, for example.
