Re: [Sawfish] Window dimensions are off by 226x238 when set via Window Rules

Hi. Thanks, I was looking for that entry-point since the
beginning...somehow I managed to completely miss the subfolders with
further scripts there.

resize-window-with-hints seems to take not the size in pixels, but in
rows and columns which are being calculated for each window (don't
what that is, though). But resize-window-with-hints* takes the pixel
values. The options dialogs seems also to assume pixels...and that's
where they clashed for me, as resize-window-with-hints was called with
the pixel values, which screwed the size completely. So basically I
just removed the calculations and directly handed the values down to

I'm not sure if this is a nVidia issue, as I was able to reproduce this
on my Laptop with an Intel chipset.

As it seems, the match-window.jls seems to be the only script/part which
calls resize-window-with-hints, everything else calls
resize-window-with-hints*...I wonder if that's a typo or a simple remain
from previous versions.

So, I came up with an even easier fix thanks to you:

diff lisp/sawfish/wm/ext/match-window.jl
<       (resize-window-with-hints w (car value) (cdr value))))
>       (resize-window-with-hints* w (car value) (cdr value))))

Works perfectly, too.

If somebody has something to debug this are some further insides, I'll
do what I can to help.

Thanks so far!
