Not sure exactly what you mean by gaps, but check out the
*window-border-style* config variable.

>From the manual:

 -- Variable: *window-border-style*
     This controls the appearance of the border around windows. valid
     values are:
          All space within the frame not used by the window is
          dedicated to the border.

          Only the border width as controlled by *maxsize-border-width*
          *normal-border-width* and *transient-border-width* is used as
          the border. The rest is filled with the unfocus color.

          The same as :thin but the border surrounds the window and the
          wasted space within the frame is not obscured, revealing the

          Like :tight but no border is ever visible.

     After changing this variable you may need to call
     sync-all-frame-windows to see the change.

I find :thin looks most like borders in other window managers. If
that's what you're looking for, just set *window-border-style* in your
~/.stumpwmrc and you're good to go.

Hope that helps,
