Hi. Glad to know your problem is gone, but this is not a bug of
Sawfish. Maybe due to rare race conditions? (IIRC there were trouble
reports only for nVidia drivers a couple of years ago.)

But if the same issue is frequent, it may be better to provide a
workaround option.

The involved function is resize-window-with-hints, which is only used
from match-window.jl. All other functions use resize-window-with-hints*.
(Notice the last asterisk.) I don't know what's the difference.
Could anyone help?
