My computer has two screens, but Qgis was started up on the screen that is 1360x768.
The other screen is 1600x1200.
On the 1600x1200 screen the main window displays maximized as expected and only gives the funny resize behavior seen in #17233 when the project is saved.
On the 1360x768 screen as soon as the window is dragged onto this screen and maximized, the window refuses to stay maximized to this screen size and resizes itself to a greater width and also pushes the window lower on the screen by about the height of the title bar so the window is no longer at the top of the screen.

This is a resized screen. What seems to be happening is the screen size is expanded to provide enough room to display messages in the status bar, so a long message pushes the window much wider for space. I have seen some windows nearly twice the width of the screen and it seems to be happening whenever a status message needs to be displayed. The most common time is when the project is saved (as referred to in #17233)
This is probably actually the same as #17233
