Think of it as a recommendation, rather than a garantuee. If the window
manager changes the size of the frame later, that's OK. The user can
move the window.
If I place my window a 0,0 the frame won't be visible, so the value I'm
looking for is simply a location (x,y) to place my window so that the
frame will be more or less visible, and not off the edge of the screen.
If some of the WM's frame is not visible, that's OK. Just suggest me an
offset... it's better than nothing.
You can say that this is bad design, etc, but in the end, this is a
problem in Wine that is not easily solvable. At this time, I am
considering looking at the parent of my window and calculating the size
of the frame from the difference in size. That won't work for some

It is simply impossible to provide that information under X.
Window managers are free to change the size of the decorations at
