added to 8.4.0.  It can be applied to 8.3.4-cvs if Joe wants
to adapt the patch for that as well.

Tested on:
    4DWM (Irix)
    CDE (AIX)
    Gnome/Sawfish (Debian)
    Gnome/Enlightenment 0.16.5 (Debian)
    KDE/kwin 2.2 (Debian)

The patched wm.test passes under all platforms
except for CDE, which now intermittently fails 2-3
wm-stackorder tests.

unixWm.test has numerous geometry-related failures
under KDE/kwin; no new failures.  Under 4DWM and CDE,
there are two preexisting failures, but no new ones. 
One preexisting failure under Gnome/Sawfish, no new ones.
Seven preexisting failures under Gnome/Enlightenment, no new
