I believe this is known unintended behavior from the patch. I reverted it on my personal branch.

Hi all,

I recently noticed that certain dialog windows (such as the Chromium
system printing dialog and gpg-askpass popups) were being managed as
tiled windows, rather than floating. This changed recently, so I
bisected down to this commit:

8806b6e2379372900e3d9e0bf6604bc7f727350b is the first bad commit

    manage: propertynotify: Reduce cost of unused size hints

dwm/dwm.c | 8 +++++---

Is this intended behavior? Or is this a bug introduced by this patch?
