           Summary: Window jerking under awesome

          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux

When using the awesome window manager, Wine windows behave strange (see below).
I didn't get an answer on the awesome mailing list, but someone sent me a mail
in private, stating that he had the same problem with Photoshop.

Here's the mail I sent to the awesome mailing list with the description of the


I use Lotus Notes in WINE and the windows behave quite strange. Now
this might be a WINE problem, but I wanted to ask here if someone has
experienced smth. similar with other applications or if someone has
ideas about what the reason might be.

At first the window is positioned correctly. But on focus change (either
focus-in or focus-out) or if any control in the window is clicked, the
window moves 2 pixels to the right and to the bottom. From now on, on
each focus change the window jerks once very quickly: it moves to
its original position and then back to the 2 pixel off position.
Sometimes, but not always, this also happens when clicking controls.

Or it moves further right and down in 2 pixel steps each time the focus
is changed or a control clicked. 

Whether it jerks or keeps moving is quite erratic. 

If the window is set to floating it still does the initial move on the
first click/focus change after the window has been moved with the
mouse, but no further jerking/moving occurs on subsequent clicks/focus

The window can be moved back to the original position by switching tags
or between layouts.
