8b48e30973 manage: Make sure c->isfixed is applied before floating checks
Commit 8806b6e237 ("manage: propertynotify: Reduce cost of unused size
hints") mistakenly removed an early size hints update that's needed to
populate c->isfixed for floating checks at manage() time. This resulted
in fixed (size hint min dimensions == max dimensions) subset of windows
not floating when they should.

See for discussion.

d93ff48803 Update monitor positions also on removal
When monitors are removed, the coordinates of existing monitors may
change, if the removed monitors had smaller coordinates than the
remaining ones.

Remove special case handling so that the same update-if-necessary loop
is run also in the case when monitors are removed.

8806b6e237 manage: propertynotify: Reduce cost of unused size hints
This patch defers all size hint calculations until they are actually
needed, drastically reducing the number of calls to updatesizehints(),
which can be expensive when called repeatedly (as it currently is during

In my unscientific testing this reduces calls to updatesizehints() by
over 90% during a typical work session. There are no functional changes
for users other than an increase in responsiveness after resizes and
a reduction in CPU time.

In slower environments or X servers, this patch also offers an
improvement in responsiveness that is often tangible after resizing a
client that changes hints during resizes.

There are two main motivations to defer this work to the time of hint

1. Some clients, especially terminals using incremental size hints,
   resend XA_WM_NORMAL_HINTS events on resize to avoid fighting with the
   WM or mouse resizing. For example, some terminals like urxvt clear
   PBaseSize and PResizeInc during XResizeWindow and restore them

   For this reason, after the resize is concluded, we typically receive
   a backlogged XA_WM_NORMAL_HINTS message for each update period with
   movement, which is useless. In some cases one may get hundreds or
   thousands of XA_WM_NORMAL_HINTS messages on large resizes, and
   currently all of these result in a separate updatesizehints() call,
   of which all but the final one are immediately outdated.

   (We can't just blindly discard these messages during resizes like we
   do for EnterNotify, because some of them might actually be for other
   windows, and may not be XA_WM_NORMAL_HINTS events.)

2. For users which use resizehints=0 most of these updates are unused
   anyway -- in the normal case where the client is not floating these
   values won't be used, so there's no need to calculate them up front.

A synthetic test using the mouse to resize a floating terminal window
from roughly 256x256 to 1024x1024 and back again shows that the number
of calls to updatesizehints() goes from over 500 before this patch (one
for each update interval with movement) to 2 after this patch (one for
each hint application), with no change in user visible behaviour.

This also reduces the delay before dwm is ready to process new events
again after a large resize on such a client, as it avoids the thundering
herd of updatesizehints() calls when hundreds of backlogged
XA_WM_NORMAL_HINTS messages appear at once after a resize is finished.

bece862a0f manage: For isfloating/oldstate check/set, ensure trans client actually exists
In certain instances trans may be set to a window that doesn't actually
map to a client via wintoclient; in this case it doesn't make sense
to set isfloating/oldstate since trans is essentially invalid in that
case / correlates to the above condition check where trans is set /
XGetTransientForHint is called.

60e9a14998 fix mem leak in cleanup()
maybe leak isn't the best word, given that the object lives for the
entire duration of the program's lifetime.

however, all elements of scheme are free-ed, can't think of any reason
why scheme itself should be an exception.

8657affa2a drawbar: Don't expend effort drawing bar if it is occluded
I noticed that a non-trivial amount of dwm's work on my machine was from
drw_text, which seemed weird, because I have the bar disabled and we
only use drw_text as part of bar drawing.

Looking more closely, I realised that while we use m->showbar when
updating the monitor bar margins, but don't skip actually drawing the
bar if it is hidden. This patch skips drawing it entirely if that is the

On my machine, this takes 10% of dwm's on-CPU time, primarily from
restack() and focus().

When the bar is toggled on again, the X server will generate an Expose
event, and we'll redraw the bar as normal as part of expose().

67d76bdc68 Do not allow focus to drift from fullscreen client via focusstack()
It generally doesn't make much sense to allow focusstack() to navigate
away from the selected fullscreen client, as you can't even see which
client you're selecting behind it.

I have had this up for a while on the wiki as a separate patch[0], but
it seems reasonable to avoid this behaviour in dwm mainline, since I'm
struggling to think of any reason to navigate away from a fullscreen
client other than a mistake.

f09418bbb6 dwm crashes when opening 50+ clients (tile layout)
Many users new to dwm find themselves caught out by being kicked out to the login manager (dwm crashing) when they open 50+ clients for demonstration purposes. The number of clients reported varies depending on the resolution of the monitor.

The cause of this is due to how the default tile layout calculates the height of the next client based on the position of the previous client. Because clients have a minimum size the (ty) position can exceed that of the window height, resulting in (m->wh - ty) becoming negative. The negative height stored as an unsigned int results in a very large height ultimately resulting in dwm crashing.

This patch adds safeguards to prevent the ty and my positions from exceeding that of the window height.

ed3ab6b4fc drawbar: Don't shadow sw global
This jarred me a bit while reading the code, since "sw" usually refers
to the global screen geometry, but in drawbar() only it refers to
text-related geometry. Renaming it makes it more obvious that these are
not related.

a8e9513783 setmfact: Unify bounds for compile-time and runtime mfact
There are two places that mfact can be set:

- In the mfact global, which is defined at compile time and passed
  into m->mfact during monitor setup. No bounds checks are performed,
  but the comment alongside it says that valid values are [0.05..0.95]:

      static const float mfact = 0.55; /* factor of master area size [0.05..0.95] */

- By setmfact, which adjusts m->mfact at runtime. It also does some
  minimum and maximum bounds checks, allowing [0.1..0.9]. Values outside
  of that range are ignored, and mfact is not adjusted.

These different thresholds mean that one cannot setmfact 0.95 or 0.05,
despite the comment above that lists the legal range for mfact.

Clarify this by enforcing the same bounds in setmfact at runtime as
those listed for mfact at compile time.

db2236001c dont NUL terminate _NET_WM_NAME
Reported by Kernc, thanks!

"This makes a particular program that uses libwnck [1] fail after:

    Wnck-WARNING **: Property _NET_WM_NAME contained invalid UTF-8

in this code [2] because the returned string contains a '\0' and the
documentation for g_utf8_validate() [3] explicitly states that when
string length is provided, no nul bytes are allowed."

It is not entirely clear it is incorrect, other WM's seem to not
NUL terminate it either though.

022d076054 Button passthrough when client is not focused
Before this change it is not possible to press a button in a client on the first
click if the client is not yet focused. The first click on the button would
only focus the client and a second click on the button is needed to activate it.
This situation can occur when moving the mouse over a client (therefore focusing
it) and then moving the focus to another client with keyboard shortcuts.

After this commit the behavior is fixed and button presses on unfocused clients
are passed to the client correctly.
