Window rect

I haven't looked into this much, but if I understand you correctly, the 
rect of the stack (or window) only gives you the rect of the section 
INSIDE all the window decorations.  If this is not enough, can you just 
work out what the border & window title sizes are (presumably they vary 
between platforms) and apply them to the window rect yourself. It isn't 
an elegant solution but it should work.
