Re: moving windows above the top panel

This is the wrong approach. The window manager is responsible for making
things fit on screen. It alone has the last world under ICCCM on window

What if the window can not be resized because it was coded that way? And if it can be resized, not all widgets will be visible (or, in the case of Qt, it will show some Really Ugly (TM) scrolling bars or scrolling arrows). This is hardly a solution. The real problem here is the fact that the developers don't know how to write good-looking and practical apps. A window manager can and only should do so much.

If you replace metacity with a window manager you'll find a lot of these
problems go away because the dialogues will fit when the window manager
says "tough it will be this small" although that depends on the toolkit
and application. Some apps just have absurdly large configuration

Exactly. The bug is primarily the app developer's here. Apps and their dialogs must not measure bigger than 720x500, no matter the toolkit they use.

Where does that statistic come from btw ?
