I see. "set lines" report 34 when Gvim is opened and when it is refreshed
(by using one of the workarounds mentioned here) "set lines" report 37.

So I search around in the vim help files and found out in the end that the
'guiheadroom' is set to 50 by default. This is subtracted from window

But by adding:

set ghr=0

to .gvimrc, gvim will use the whole height and the problem goes away!

So not a dwm problem after all... Hope it works for others too.
I use vim 7.2.79
