Managed to reproduce what you see with gtk+-2.20 and gtk+2.22 on
windows XP. I can also confirm that the path from the bug (552041)

- left click "Size" in the context menu
- left click wherever the "cross" cursor appeared
- left click + drag the window

This is definitely a bug in the win32 gdk backend and should probably
