There are a few options:
1. don't sink such windows
Find a X11 property to identify it with xprop, then only sink such
windows that don't match that predicate:
> mh = fmap not (className =? "netgen") --> (ask >>= doF . sink)
2. use a layout that respects hints
If the window presents hints as to its desired size, using a hinted
layout (or LayoutHints) might prevent such behavior with the original
3. fix the app
That application should accept alternate window sizes (ICCM?
violation), without behaving so strangely.
