First of all PSize is defined in Xutil.h as 1L << 3, no other P*
constant has this bitmask, except PAllHints which is an ORed
composition of all P* constants. Since PSize is never used in dwm's
updatesize() algorithm this change doesn't fix or change anything in
my opinion. If anyone sees an explanation why this change regarding
the blog entry could fix something, please let me know.

Kind regards,
