[xmonad] xmonad & opera dialogs

Thx for your reply.

I'm using opera 10.63 (since today, the problem also exist with 10.62 and some
earlier). Distro is gentoo.

I can resize the dialog boxes the way I want to. The size varies like every time.
Sometimes the size is ok, sometimes it is to small (if opera is on one of my small
screens, 1200x1600) and sometimes it is way to big (>5000 pixel).

I have 3 screens here, 1200x1600, 2560x1600 and 1200x1600. I'm not 100% sure but the
big download dialog only occurs since I added the third monitor (1200x1600). Before
there were only the small boxes on the 1200x1600 screen.

If I resize one box the next time the box has a different size, seems to be random.

I'm not sure if I would like to tile all dialogs. What would be the config part for

Btw: That doesn't hapen in other programs. I'm not using a lot programs with GUI, but
for example firefox don't have that problem at my computer.
