I really need the redraw to manage gimp windows, sometimes I just have
to see what they are doing to know the size I want, I have the same
problem with image viewers, openoffice, etc, but if the server grab
solution is simpler I won't matter maintaining a patch for that, maybe
a patch where you can define in rules if you want incremental resizes
for a given window class or something...
BTW, I think 5.2 will be a great release (and I haven't had any
problems with mplayer so far).
