Disable full screen view when window dragged to top of screen?

Is there a way to disable the function by which a window is expanded full screen size when dragged to the top of the screen?

I imagine some people find it useful to have a full screen for their programs, namely graphic applications. But when I am arranging my screen, I like to place the top of the program right on the top edge of my screen. This is something I can't do now- without activating the full-blown full-screen behavior.

Help!
