Why choose window placement and dimensions at exec, instead of letting
the window manager handle the issue? Just set _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE to
_NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_DIALOG and spend engineering time ranting about
WM_TRANSIENT_FOR, modality and modularity instead.

dmenu's override-redirect flag has always annoyed me, as well as
grabbing the whole keyboard rendering it temporarily unusable for
anything but typing text into dmenu or escaping out of it.
