Because then the grab spawns over the managed client window as well. This way
the WM can detect button clicks over the entire area. I need this for the normal
activation in click-to-focus mode when the window is inactive, or for
additional shortcuts like Alt-RMB to resize, Alt-LMB to move, Alt-MMB to
For simplicity, kwin has an extra decoration window just around the managed
client window, with the same size.
