As noted elsewhere, I think this is a window manager issue. Iʼd expect those
two calls to give the same effect, which is what I see.

Iʼll have to retest this one, I may have missed a case.

That I donʼt know, Iʼll find out...

I asked for 2400 because if I ask for 2360 the frame is not flush
right.

Yes, itʼs high resolution, but 20 pixels seems like more than can be
accounted for by scaling.

I think weʼre getting a -20 offset back from X somewhere when querying
the frame size/position. If I look at this hunk in
x_real_pos_and_offsets:

#ifdef USE_XCB
      geom = xcb_get_geometry_reply (xcb_conn, geom_cookie, NULL);
      if (geom)
        {
          real_x = geom->x;

then real_x there is -20 when the frame is flush left. Should we be
using gdk/gtk calls to get the window geometry?
