Fix lots of little issues with min/max constraints and size increment
2004-04-04 Elijah Newren <newren gmail com> Fix lots of little issues with min/max constraints and size increment constraints. Fixes #329152, #418395, and possibly others. * src/window-props.c (meta_set_normal_hints): Do more checking to make sure application specified constraints are self-consistent, modifying the size_hints as necessary to achieve self-consistency. * src/constraints.c (setup_constraint_info): remove ugly copy-pasto, (constrain_size_increments): be careful that fixing violation of the constraints doesn't cause a violation of the minimum size constraints. * src/window.c (ensure_size_hints_satisfied): new function, (meta_window_unmaximize, meta_window_unmake_fullscreen): the saved_rect may no longer be valid (as in the case of #329152) so call ensure_size_hints_satisfied to fix it up. * doc/how-to-get-focus-right.txt: Some minor spacing and wording fixes completely unrelated to the rest of this commit svn path=/trunk/; revision=3155
