usually, slock should get a XRRScreenChangeNotifyEvent when the screen
size changes. I wonder why it isn't fired; maybe there's a bug in slock
or in awesome wm not sending proper events.

I'm puzzled why we don't just do something like

Atom wm_state = XInternAtom (display, "_NET_WM_STATE", true );
Atom wm_fullscreen = XInternAtom (display, "_NET_WM_STATE_FULLSCREEN", true );

XChangeProperty(display, window, wm_state, XA_ATOM, 32,
                PropModeReplace, (unsigned char *)&wm_fullscreen, 1);

on the slock-"window", but I'm sure there are reasons for that.
