Just a (probably silly) idea: would reparenting to the parent help? I
haven't read Sun's sources myself, but from what I understand these
java progs discard all configurenotify's and resizes if they are not
reparented (or rather, _until_ they are reparented). If one would
reparenting such a window to what already is its parent, this java
stuff might still react to the ReparentNotify this generates. For the
rest nothing would change, so dwm's codebase wouldn't need to change
any further. If this works, a nice "/* stupid hack to work around java
issue */" above the code would suffice I think.

Note that I don't really have a clue about this stuff, so this might
all be nonsense; decided to share it anyway in case it isn't garbage
though :-)

Greetings, Sander.
