Okay, that is a real problem.  The pager definitely needs to react
to changes of the desktop layout, be it by attaching or detaching
monitors at run time or by issuing the desktopsize command.

The pager should fix that situation itself and not expect the fvwm
core to do it.  There are two cases and multiple possible ways to deal
with it:

1) Pager is using a user specified geometry:

   a) Stick with the user specified size.
   b) Resize the window proportionally.

2) Pager is using the calculated default size:

   a) Recalculate total size and use that.
   b) Resize the window proportionally but try to keep it close
      to the current one; at least don't make it much bigger or

The module interface provides the information necessary to
implement that.

Would 1a + 2b be sensible default behaviour?
