Linuxconf sets its window min size, sawfish honors it. Not a sawfish bug.
Window managers are required to honor the size hints.

The real problem here is that Linuxconf changes its GUI so that the minimum
useful size is larger. However I don't think we're going to redo the linuxconf
GUI at this point, since next-generation config tools are in the works.
