I added that but have no idea where the error log resided.
Nevertheless, I simplified that line to

if(!XGetWMNormalHints(dpy, c->win, &size, &msize))return;

and the issue is also fxied. My theory is that if XGetWMNormalHints
fails then information returned in size is rubbish, and set that flag to
PSize can help to prevent incorrectly change anything.
