#81 Exclude menu bar under Aqua rootless?

Feature Suggestion
Rootless (76)

Just a suggestion/feature request:

Would it be possible to define the screen region
as anything _below_ the menu bar when in
Rootless mode? I mean that windows would not
disappear under the menu bar when their
coordinates are set at (x,0). This would make for a
more consistent user experience.

On another note, when dragging windows to the
edge of the screen, they will randomly flash up on
the opposite side. I'm not sure if that is an X thing
or a window manager thing (using xfwm, because
its relatively light-weight. Oroborus, although
small, eats up >95% of processor time!)

    There is a patch available. It fixed my problem and should
    fix yours.

    It doesn't exactly what you are looking for. See if it
    works for you and let know now if there is any problem.

    Good luck

    This needs to be re-rev'ed. The patch is reversed (you
    have to apply with -R), and it fails to build with a current
    CVS checkout, presumabbly because some part of one
    of the compiles is using a function that uses the newly
    defined variable without including the code that
    includes the variable.

    As a quick 10-second fix, I replaced the extern ints with
    #define directives, and it builds and works with said
    modifications, so this patch is fine, but needs some
