That's the correct way to do it regardless of which AES you use. The
dirty rectangle sent with WM_REDRAW is the actual dirty rectangle, not
the dirty rectangle(s) in the window's work area.

This also applies to the top window! Don't ever use "clever" tricks

if (top_window)
  just_redraw(); // Why? You only save a single wind_get() in most
                 // cases.

This will break. Having an "always on top" window on the screen is
enough to cause problems. Also, I'm not sure what the top window is when
a menu is open. Is it the menu or the top window?
