I'm reporting this as a bug, it's my understanding this is not how the ModM 
feature of making a window small and larger is suppose to work.

I noticed as an example, even with a stock rc.lua file, if I do 'Mod Enter' and 
the terminal opens I can then do ModM and maximize the window,
then do ModM again and make it the default size when it was first opened.

Typically what I've noticed is most windows need to be maximized for this to 
happen, but on occassion I've also noticed it doesn't matter.

Then when I do either action, restart Awesome, or with only this one window 
open on a desktop, click the box next to the clock to scroll through the 
various tile features, and then put it back to the default I had it on, the box 
with the blob lower left, then I try ModM again, with the window maximized, it 
only moves up and down about 1/4 from the bottom. I press ModM and the bottom 
of the window moves up 1/4 and then there's a gap at the bottom. I press ModM 
and the bottom moves down 1/4 of an inch, this time resting on the top of the 

And many times also, after the restart, or scrolling through tile functions, 
the window has the gap at the bottom in a maxmized size, then I try ModM again, 
and the bottom moves down, and then I try ModM again, but the window just sits 
there and flickers and doesn't even move anymore, not even the slighest 
movement in size, just flickers.

The ModM function of making the window small like the default size when opening 
the window for the first time, going from maximize to small again never works, 
after a restart or scrolling through the tile options, and isn't it suppose to 
maximize and then go back to the default small size?

I'm attaching a screen shot called gap showing the gap that is first created 
from the restart or tile function change on a maximized terminal or window.

One or more files have been attached.
