Let's break this down ...

1 - AES sends WM_SIZED
2 - Windom sees new size < required
3 - Windom calls wind_set with new minimum size
5 - AES send WM_MOVED
6 - Windom calls wind_set

Now ... there would be a problem if the rectangle were the same for both
SIZED and MOVED.  However, you leave out step $4

At step #3 you just called the AES. and told it your new size!  If you
cached the information, do NOT go to step 4 or 5 until the application
calls wind_set and responds.

Step #4 - tha AES looks at your new window coordinates to see what to do

The AES knows if you changed the X/Y like you were supposed to - if so,
it doesn't have to send a WM_MOVED at all.  If it does need to send this
message, you've already given the AES your new minimum size that you
want, so pass the new WH set in SIZED back to the application in the
WM_MOVED.  The AES doesn't have to make the SIZE and MOVE rectangles the
same, nor does it have to send the MOVE if the program does its job.

If it works and no applications are using REPOSED, then the conclusion
is that either ..

A - It doesn't work or you wouldn't need a new message
B - It does work, and the new message isn't needed.
C - A better solution is needed.  I'd prefer the solution above to a new

And before someone says soemthing about snapping the coordinates, I
realize that during a SIZE or MOVE you might snap any coordinates.  In
the above, if you are snapping XY and they change at step #3, then the
app knows they changed.  Coordinate snapping doesn't change the

If you have visual problems, just cache the information the AES sends
you and call the AES with the new values after a timeout.  Then it
doesn't matter what the AES sends you.
