It seems being related that firefox does not really accept being
resized if it is not mapped ;) So the decision is, wether to
live with flicker or not, I will see if I can develop a sane
solution for the problem (before this change XMoveWindow() made
sure that the y-coordinate is correct in any case, however the
old behavior hided the fact, that ff internally lived with a
different geometry information). ff is a nightmare ;)
