there still seems to be a minor problem. The size of the dialog
box windows is often not the intended one which is shown in other
window managers (I always cross check with fluxbox). I do not know
when and how the window size is set in the code, I only notice the
appearance. When a new window is opened the size of the frame that it
gets in afterstep seems to be quite unpredictable. If a window tries
to resize itself, I found in most cases that the frame it gets is
much larger than what was requested. I hope there is a simple and
easy-to-fix explanation for this behaviour.
