Known issue. xterm expects to be resized with a certain increment, and
behaves bad when it isn't. dwm doesn't do inc-handling in tiled mode,
which is why the bottom line gets cut of in xterm sometimes (dwm does
inc-handling in floating mode, and you'll notice that xterm's bottom
line doesn't get cut of there). Basically this is xterms fault: apps
can request to be resized with a certain increment, but shouldn't mess
up when the don't get what they ask for. The solution is quite simple:
use a saner terminal emulator. rxvt or any of its derivatives behave
