That's indeed an issue. So the question is, wether we revert the
algorithm to not handling any remainder or to handle it properly
for both, master and stack windows.

What do others think? I think it might be worth to make it work
properly for any case, even if the algorithm gets a little bit
more complex, just for accuracy and aesthetical reasons.
