Well, yeah, all window managers do that. Like I said, I wasn't following
the thread and only responded because I was specifically asked to
respond. The experience is rather like day dreaming in math class and
then being asked to solve the problem on the board. :-)

Anyway, is the KDE window manager sending the application a resize
event? If it is, what's the problem?
