Maximizing windows without borders creates flickers with xemacs


Description Alexander Wold 2006-10-09 09:14:27 CEST
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20060902 Firefox/1.0.4 (Debian package 1.0.4-2sarge11)
Build Identifier: 

Maximizing windows which removes window borders does not work correctly with xemacs. We need to maximize windows and still have the borders or xemacs flickers.
Maximizing now works as it does on other WM's, but it would be nice to have maximize with window borders as well.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start xemacs
2.maximize window

Already there, it's an option.

I just wanted to mention that I came across this problem today, after upgrading xfce. I've now solved it by disabling the "hide borders" option as described in bug 2257, but basically, the default behaviour is completely unacceptable.

Is it an xemacs bug that causes it to flicker when the borders are hidden?

Some application expect the window to be a multiple of the size increment specified and may misbehave otherwise, which is not possible with fullscreen because the screen may not be a multiple of the size increment.

That is why this is an option, so that if you find the behavior "unacceptable", you can still revert to the old behavior where the size increment is enforced even in fullscreen mode.

Bug #2390
