Richard added code to move the test windows outside the screen. (Doesn't work on KDE)
In most cases this issue should be resolved now.

With a new feature of EWMH I was able to improve on this a bit. On a window manager that supports _NET_REQUEST_FRAME_EXTENTS we wont need to display the temporary windows.

No, unfortunately I don't have a better solution. Caching should be fine and today it seems to work here, when I reported the bug, each application seemed to rerun the test again. Maybe it depends if the application is started form consoel, fron the toolbar or the gworkspace tab. or how and when the gnustep environment is sourced.. If I can make the problem more reproducable I'll follow-up

This is a fix to bug #17717
I find it ugly too, so I made sure it only happens once (caching the results in the X server) per login, but I don't know of a better (or any other) solution.
Any improvements would be very welcome!

some recent change makes an ugly empty window appear and flicker several times on application startup. I understand it is for guessing/grabbing some information, but I find this a very ugly hack.
