If we want that, we have to decide how to synchronize the handling of a
confirmation message with the rest of system messages arriving around
that time.  For this purpose, we have to determine what can be safely
processed and what must be processed to ensure liveness while waiting
for the confirmation.  (I suppose that's what Jason's "inter-thread
synchronization" amounts to, though I don't understand the term "thread"
in the present context - sorry.  But maybe that's what ATTACH_THREADS
was about.)

Note that the suggested patch handles all that perfectly well.  Doing
anything in addition like what you mention above is unnecessary, in
fact likely contra-productive.

Instead I'd suggest to look into the X and GTK part of this issue
(frame-positioning/resizing that is) now.  On that platforms it is
still broken in several aspects and considerations are spent much more
usefully there.

Then after having fixed X and GTK you can still come back to Windows
and try to do better than the suggested 3-line patch.  Maybe you can,
who knows.
