If it annoys you, there is an easy fix. Change client.c:resize()
as follows:

  Replace if(sizehints) with if(1)

This will introduce gaps between windows, but fix your bug.
However, don't expect this being pushed into vanilla dwm, simply
because the side-effect you notice is wanted by design of dwm.

Hope this helps,
