Comments on 2009-10-09 Resizing Too Large Windows In X11 on Mac OS 10.4

Urmm... I hesitate to comment because honestly I’m nowhere close to understanding what this article even means, but fwiw I solved this problem in Ubuntu in single-window mode by holding alt while clicking inside the image window, which allowed me to drag it up and see the bottom. It still wouldn’t let me re-size upward because the toolbox was so tall, so I widened the toolbox until it was two columns, then I could drag the bottom of window upward.

Not sure about 10.4, and I think your solution will work for everything (using a WM to work the window magic), but I stumbled into this with GIMP as well, and I found a simpler hack - just removing the sessionrc file for gimp caused the window to go back to its defaults, which was then small enough that I could grab the resizer in the bottom right. Command: “rm ~LibraryApplication\ Support/GIMP/2.8/sessionrc”.
