Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 120652
invalid viewport change requests from libwnck

Description of problem:
A bug discussed quite extensively at:
is still present. It does not affect metacity, which likely
ignores those messages, but other window managers conforming
to EWMH standard are messed up.
A patch referenced in the quoted discussion, i.e.
still applies and resolves the issue.
For a convenience attached is the same patch rediffed against
libwnck-22.214.171.124 sources but the only change is in diff headers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put into ~/.sawish/rc a line like
2. Start sawfish; if running metacity wm you can do that by
typing in a terminal window
killall metacity && sawfish &
3. Make sure that you have some windows open in some workspaces
and start mousing around in "Workspace Switcher" on a gnome-panel.
You will be screwed in no time at all. Getting a window
totally outside of display bounds, so it cannot be even
"Alt-dragged" into a position, is really easy.

fixing for FC3

kas: bug #109623, bug #109624 and bug #125543 all look like the same
