You mean using USPosition and USSize? The following text from the ICCCM?
"To indicate that the size and position of the window (when a transition
from the Withdrawn state occurs) was specified by the user, the client
should set the USPosition and USSize flags, which allow a window manager
to know that the user specifically asked where the window should be
placed or how the window should be sized and that further interaction is
superfluous. To indicate that it was specified by the client without any
user involvement, the client should set PPosition and PSize ."
I'm using sawfish, and if I add USPosition | USSize to
WM_SIZE_HINTS.flags, I still get autoplacement. Should this be
considered a bug in sawfish?
Perhaps we could add a clarification that the WM should use USPosition
and USSize to position the window if they are specified and not attempt

the EWMH, but rather in the original ICCCM on which the EWMH is based.
