Afaik there's no easy solution, as (u)rxvt depends with this on having
window size be multiple of windows size increments (given by wmhints).
But this iirc is NOT MUST by ICCCM. This is how this broblem occur, the
last line is duplicated, because rxvt doesn't redraw it (because it
think that it have window size given by itself -- which mustn't be true
in tile mode with resizehints == false).
