Hi Clemens,

For fillRect...

If x or y are > MAX_SHORT then you should probably just reject the 
operation immediately, otherwise you end up with a bunch of math that 
should end up doing a NOP, but it is tenuous if it actually succeeds in 
doing so.

Also, if x,y are < MIN_SHORT then when you clamp them to MIN_SHORT they 
may be > x2,y2 and so when you clamp the dimensions you will end up 
clamping a massively negative number to Ushort.  I don't have the code 
off hand to see how the method deals with that, but it is probably not 
100% kosher in this case (not sure if the subtraction might end up 
looking like a huge positive number).  Thus, it is probably better to 
reject the op if x2,y2 are < MIN_SHORT as well rather than rely on the 

Also, rejecting the call here rather than relying on the outcome of the 
math avoids adding NOP requests to the X protocol stream...
