This sounds like a bug in the particular applications that are creating
these windows. You should probably file bugs against those applications
individually for creating windows larger than your desktop size.

This has been discussed previously and was vetoed by the maintainer,
last I recall. There is a bug report about it somewhere, because it
affects some of Sun's systems. I have not looked in on that bug in a
