I did some more testing by:
1) Start Xorg without gdmgreeter
2) export DISPLAY=:2
3) start metacity and gcalctool

Upon resize of the calculator I got this warning on the console:

Window manager warning: Treating resize request of legacy application 0x200003
(Calculator) as a fullscreen request

Not sure if that's causing the resize and menus to no work. I also tried to
start Xorg with -xinerama to disable it, but my computer thinks it's enabled.
There's a bug somewhere, not sure though.
