In that case, Emacs is supposed to adjust left/top frame parameters
according to the title-bar top-left corner position that the window
manager modified, in response to some notification events.

Even with Compiz, left/top frame parameters point to the title bar if
we turn off visual effects.  I tested it with Ubuntu 10.04.

I suspect x_real_positions fails to get the window for decoration for
Compiz if visual effects are turned on.  Maybe Compiz does not assign
X11 windows for window decorations.
