New issue 270 by chr.gogo... at web.de: HintedTile interferes with simpleDeco

What steps will reproduce the problem?

1. Eddit xmonad.hs to make xmonad use the following layout:

simpleDeco shrinkText myTheme ( HintedTile 2 0.03 0.5 TopLeft
XMonad.Layout.HintedTile.Tall )


myTheme = defaultTheme
           , decoHeight = 18

2. Open an urxvt (rxvt-unicode) terminal window.
3. Play with the value of the decoHeight option

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

The hinted tile layout schould take care of the restrictions of the size
of the terminal window to be a multiple of the line height. However it
does not correctly take into account the height of the decoration when
calcaulating the height of the window. For some values of decoHeight the
height of the actual drawing area of urxvt (window without the decoration)
is not a multiple of the line height.

I think one would have to make the HintedTile layout be aware of the
height of the decoration.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
xmonad 0.7
urxvt 9.05
Debian Gnu Linux (Lenny)
