ah yes, that helps all right!!! Veery nice... (i'm smiling again :))
didnt know u could do that... (we really should put that into the
guide as well. Anyway.)

It is a bit of a "visual surprise", though, initially when i saw the
"visual guide" (u know, that sort of "greyish floating window size
guide" to help u gauge the size of what u're going to resize to before
u finally release the mouse button) - cos it is based on "total window
resizing" - even though in the end, what takes effect is only the
width resizing, and not the height resizing. The old wmii-2 didnt have
this problem. But hey, i can live with this - so long as i can still
resize the height, or the width....
