Haskell package janitor in charge of X11 here. If you formulate this  
as a patch to X11, I'll happily apply it.

Can't apply this one though -- I don't have commit access to xmonad-core.

>   * handle-windows-with-no-sizehint
>   When a window has no size hint set, the memory returned by  
> XGetWMNormalHints
>   may be pretty useless. This can cause hint-less windows to bounce  
> between 1x1,
>   1xn, mx1, the proper size, and (rarely) fullscreen when the

>   modifier from xmonad-contrib is used.
>   Two programs that exhibit this behavior are feh and sxiv.
