Issue 176: Transient windows pop up with wrong size on second screen

New issue report by lithis7:
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Have a dual-head setup with screens of different resolution.
2. Run OpenOffice.org on the second screen.
3. Choose Help | About.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The About dialog box should appear as a floating window of the proper 
size. Instead, the size is wrong by the ratio of the size of the first 
screen to the size of the second screen. For example, I have a 1280x1024 
screen 0 and a 1280x720 screen 1. The About box appears with the proper 
width, but it is not tall enough.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
xmonad darcs on Ubuntu Gutsy.

Please provide any additional information below.
This issue started after romreim's recent float patch, but I'm not asking 
for that patch to be reverted: I prefer this issue to the pre-patch 

A similar effect occurs when a moving a floating window between screens 
with the keyboard (floating windows change size when they change screens). 
That behavior has bothered me for a while. Floats do not change size when 
moved with the mouse.
