I see. Well I investigated into this issue on the dwm side, and
it is clear that these specific GTK versions break ICCCM
ConfigureRequest-Handling until this fix is applied officially.
I cannot change dwm accordingly without adding kludges to get it
to work correctly (note, one could extend Client with Bool
ignoreconfreq; and then extending Rule similiar, so that one
could define a rule for such window classes that allow dwm to
ignore any configurerequests (or to answer them with a synthetic
ConfigureNotify without changing anything for such cases -
which might break clients who are completely broken anyways... ;))

Let's wait some months that the GTK side will be fixed properly.
So, dwm-4.1 is on its road.
