Those applications specify a size increment so that the overall size
of the window remains a multiple of a character cell and xfwm4 honor
this even when tiling.

So this is not a defect in xfwm4, it just strictly applies what the
client has requested for its size (granted, there are exceptions
there, like maximized or fullscreen, xfwm4 will ignore size increments
for those).
