Re: [dwm] window move lag

An easy fix is grabbing the X server until the mouse release. I did
this once, but decided against it since your scenario is at least less
frequent in my own use case ;)

Another possibility would be to go the old wmi way of drawing an XORed
border onto the screen. But I really prefer the way as it is in dwm.

Kind regards,
