I have a client (window) which abort() upon BadAlloc sent XError due to resizing
the window "over its back" -- either above the top or beyond the left.
(xterm, for example, resizes to a very long window in such a case.)
Or BadAlloc sounds like a memory problem, and this might well be, since a
negative height or width is a very large unsigned value.
How can one tell whether the client should be resize its window to a safe width
x height, or there is really a memory problem in the server.
