Follow-up Comment #11, bug #21571 (project gnustep):

Ok, here we go. I was able to locate the patch, applied it to the 0.19.2
"startup" archive. Cleaned out everything, made sure the source is current

So, so it works a bit better. I removed the properties from the root window,
started the app and called up one of the decorated windows. No more huge white
empty window.

It's still not correct, though. Unless I completely messed up and still have
some old testing stuff in the code that I can't find anymore, let me show you
the same window on MacOS (Cocoa) and Linux (GNUstep, with IceWM):


They both come out at almost the same size, but the Linux window is clipped
off at the bottom, and maybe the black border at the right side isn't entirely
intentional either.

Note that this is the same code, so it's not just a matter of making the
NSView larger. I hope :-) There's the occasional #ifdef LINUX and #ifdef
APPLE, but...

And last but not least, even with your patch, it has exactly the same problem
that I had when I played with the XGServerWindow.m code: after quitting the
application and starting again, I'm back at negative values and huge white
empty windows. Which wouldn't be a major problem, as I could just system() the
xprop remove, but that's probably not the intended way, and it causes that
ugly window flashing at startup...
