I got around this by hacking up the dotile() function to not resize
windows, instead it merely moves them around.

It wasn't a hard change, as I recall I only had to delete two or three
lines. Last time I did it was dwm 1.5 though, I don't update my laptop
very often. So maybe it's changed.

It helps a lot in situations where resizing xterms is unwanted (serial
console on a troublesome server being one example).
