Comment #1 on issue 517 by allber... at gmail.com: avoidStruts and subTabbed  

The actual bug is in Decoration, which assumes that because decoration  
windows "obviously" will be near the windows they decorate, there is no  
need to take the screen rectangle into account.  So it doesn't pass the  
screen rectangle that avoidStruts modified to Tabbed, and Tabbed ends up  
using the unmodified screen rectangle as a result.

I have some hacks to Decoration (on a machine that's in storage, sigh, and  
may remain there for a while --- I still do not have a permanent address)  
but they really are hacks; someone might want to look at a proper fix.
