Maybe you could make (0,0) or anything less than (framewidth,frameheight) a
special case?

Twm's way of doing things is annoying with apps like Netscape that think they
know where to put their windows.  :)  Each new window ends up further down and
to the right. I don't know if broken apps are a good reason to break the
window manager too, but Netscape is pretty widely used...
