Did the Xephyr Resize patch get removed?

--- Additional comment from Marian Csontos on 2013-02-27 04:06:58 EST ---

Short answer is yes, it got. Commit 1dee54d04.

Among other things this really breaks things in tiling window managers.
Also saved firefox sessions from RHEL6.3 are broken: firefox is using larger window than Xephyr.

Would it be possible getting it back in z-stream?

--- Additional comment from Marian Csontos on 2013-02-27 04:26:07 EST ---

And the workaround for broken firefox session is to search for /"width":/ and /"height":/ in profile's sessionstore.js (~/.mozilla/firefox/s0m3jVnK.default/sessionstore.js) and hand edit the numbers.

Patch was removed from RHEL server because it got merged upstream as xorg-server- However, the upstream patch has two hunks different than the one we used to ship. Specifically, the resize option is now only enabled if win_pre_existing is != None whereas the previous patch had this unconditionally.

Best option here is probably to cherry-pick "ephyr: Add -resizeable option" (xorg-server- and set EphyrWantResize to 1 by default. This should emulate the behaviour of RHEL 6.3.

Can we get the same option turned on in Fedora also?
