Smart placement does not work for windows with height or width begin maximal.


Description Naofumi Honda 2007-04-11 14:47:20 CEST
Under a screen (with only pannels and desktop icons), launch a window
whose height is maximal but width is smaller than half of the screen width.
Again launch a window with the same size. You would normally expect that
two disjoint windows appear in the screen. 
However both two windows are placed at the same position (left,top) and
completely overlapped.

The values of full_y, frameTop(c) and ymax of smartPlacement()
(xfwm4/src/placement.c) are 27, 28, and 53 respectively in my case. 
Thus the code of calculations of the placement are completely ignored 
because of fully_y + frameTop(c) > ymax.

It might be better to change the code from

  for (test_y = fully_y + frameTop(c); test_y <= maxy; test_y += 8){ 


   do {
       test_y = fully_y + frameTop(c);
       .... (here it's better to change the code 
             for x coordinate in the same way)
       test_y += 8;
    } while (test_y <= maxy).

The above change means the program would always calculate 
the window (smart) position.
