OK, splitting this thread into two pieces.

Hmm, this sounds a bit like:

But that shouldn't happen any more.

Can you rewrite the test to use only GtkPlug, GtkSocket?

It works exactly identical to the way that window managers handle
toplevel windows... (which means we can use all the horribly complex
logic in GtkWindow verbatim in GtkPlug.)

So, see the ICCCM (probably in /usr/share/doc/XFree86-doc-*/) for
complete details.

Every time a Plug asks for a new size via XResizeWindow, XMoveResizeWindow.
it is guaranteed to get a ConfigureNotify event back. If the window
was actually resized, then it will get a real ConfigureNotify sent
from X. If the Socket decided not to actually resize the window,
then it sends a synthetic ConfigureNotify back.
