thanks Teika. I'll keep an eye on this. I am now curious.

by the way, if anybody is interested, I have a script that moves the
current window within the boundary of the display, and another one that
moves all the windows within the display. These are used when I rotate
my laptop screen or I detached the external display from my laptop
(around 50% larger). I remaximizes windows to the new display size too.

I sometimes wonder if I should write an extension that keep track of
window sizes and locations in two different displays sizes. So when one
changes they go back to where they were before. Otherwise it is kind of
painful. I guess it would not be difficult...
