Without a well formed bug report (ie how to reproduce the problem, tested against current CVS, and best of all, a backtrace) I can't help. Such comments are totally useless.

Do you use the compositing extension? 

The XawTV overlay draws directly to screen and that will prolly won't work with compositing.

Again, please enter a bug report if you think you have found a relevant bug.

The WM won't change the asked geometry. It will change the positonning, not the size. That is on purpose.
