Though I understand there is a database entry now to prevent windows from
being able to resize themselves, I was thinking about a more general
solution.  The real issue is that the windows are requesting to be 0 width.=

I'm curious if that is *ever* a valid request.  It actually seems sort of a
sec vulnerability in certain ways, as you could end up with windows hanging
out that you can't see.

Might it be a good idea to decide that the smallest size a window could
request on a resize would be 5x5 pixels, or something?  Just a thought.

There is no silver bullet.  Plus, werewolves make better neighbors
than zombies, and they tend to keep the vampire population down.
