Heh, looking at my own code I can see that WM_NORMAL_HINTS can actually be
changed anytime :). One thing I wonder is what is supposed to happen when
gravity changes ? Like if I change gravity from Static to NorthWest - am I
supposed to use client's corner as a reference point or frame's corner ???
I can't seem to find anything about it in ICCCM. Logicaly it should be
client's corner. Confusing. Sounds like a good item to add to _NET specs.

yep, XV does similar things - it tries to adjust both hints and position
resizing self. Extremely nasty.
