I should add my observation of "xpdf -fullscreen".  "xpdf"
has its dirty hacked "fullscreen" mode, in which it adjusts
the size of the displaying area to be the same size as your
screen, and it requests to be displayed in such a way that
its borders and control buttons are all off-screen, so you
don't see it.  I think this behaviour satisfies the condition of
that `adjust' function, since

    x + wid > 1 || y + h > 1

so the window will be put in the center according to

    W.RationalRect (0.5 - wid/2) (0.5 - h/2) wid h

but it doesn't happens.  Where am I wrong about this?

    c/*    __o/*
    <\     * (__
    */\      <
