Yes, in some case I remember it being impossible even to move a window
that's not on the top.  Very annoying.  On the whole I regard xmonad's
behaviour as a feature rather than a bug.

Indeed, I think most window managers let them get away with far too
much with allowing them to choose their position and size.
