Hmmm...but something tells that client "this area has been modified
and should be redrawn" (or am I wrong in that assumption?). So the
point is, that the area to be redrawn is not full client frame but
just the title bar, so the enclosed client does not overlap with
the redrawn area and does not need to redraw at all. I think the "bug"
here consists in the claim of the area to be redrawn - it's not the
full parent window of the client, but just an area which does not
overlap with the client. (Or is this partial redraw impossible in X ?)
