I have written an image viewer that uses FLTK-1.3 .
On MS-WINDOWS (Win7) the origin of the image window is fixed at
the current position and the image window height and/or width
changes with the width and height of the image.
On LINUX I use fvwm 2.6.5 .
With LINUX I have a severe problem: the image window hops around
like a frog when the image window height and width changes with the
width and height of the image. I have sent an EMAIL to the list
and asked what I can do:

I have made a test. I have compiled and installed XFCE-4.10 and
found, that the image viewer shows the same stable behaviour as
with MS-WINDOWS: the window origin remains fixed while the width
and/or height of the image viewer changes.
Is it possible to configure FVWM such that the origin of the FLTK
window does not change?
