I don't think this is a WM bug. The WM ( in this case,

Ooops, I missed the part where you were manually positioning it.
Yeah, that's a tough call on whether the WM should follow that or
force the window onscreen, so it's not clear which is right.

I disagree that it's a tough call. If an app requests to be drawn at a
particular position, then the only valid action on the part of the WM is
to do just that. Consider an app that starts off-screen and scrolls
onscreen. Maybe this is a tacky example, but it's perfectly valid. No,
actually, here's a not-so-tacky example - an OS-X like starter bar :)

Isn't popoup an OverrideRedirect window?

If it is, than window manager just can't do anything about it, because it
simply does not know about it.

Yes, if it is, you're right.  For some reason I just assumed it was a
dialog window; don't know why.  Any other blunders I made besides
missing the manual positioning bit and the likely case that the window
is override-redirect?  :-/
