Docking window issues in CS6 and CC2014

If the Photoshop interface is not maximized, and I have have a window docked as a tab filling the workspace, I am able to dock other documents above or below the previous doc by dragging it to the dividing line above or below said window. A blue line then appears and, when I release the mouse button, it splits my workspace between my two documents, and looks like the "2-Up Horizontal" window arrangement. In this, it works as I imagine is intended.

If the Photoshop interface is maximized (that is to say the little icon next to the close application "X" looks like two overlapping boxes), which is my preferred method of working, I am only able to dock windows to the left or right of the aforementioned window, or as another tab, and not above or blow it.

Am I missing something? Is this the desired behavior? It is consistent with CS6 on my laptop at home as well as CC 2014 on my work desktop, two computers with quite different hardware; ATI vs Nvidia, different motherboards, drivers etc. Both do have Intel processors, Windows 7, and attached Cintiq in common. Other than that little is shared between the two machines.

I do know there are workarounds, so please don't waste your time with suggestions other than addressing the behavior directly. Many thanks in advance!
