Hi Alexander,

I don't see any immediate problems with the changes and generally the 
fix looks good to me. However, I suppose that on some rare window 
managers this might not work as expected. We should understand the risk 
and be ready to fix problems if any regressions are reported.

Also note that there are non-, single-, and double- (and possibly even 
multi-) re-parenting window managers. See XWM.java for details. Have you 
tested this code with at least one WM of each of these categories to 
ensure we don't break things?

best regards,
