The window moving/resizing code might be changed after dwm-5.2 which I
plan to release tonight. My favorite is just keeping a server grab
during the resize/move to prevent clients from redrawing since they
won't receive any events during that time. The current code however
has been implemented as is on purpose, because I kind of liked the
idea to see terminal refreshing themselves during resizals. But I
might never actually used this, since I'm normally in tiled mode

Kind regards,
