      AWT doesn't properly detect what WM is running. Since AWT uses
      information about running WM for some internal heuristic, stale WM
      information results in weird effects.

      Most stunning example is to start Enlightenment and then exit it and
      start, say, sawfish or WindowMaker. Inset calculations in AWT will be
      thoroughly ruined (to put it mildly), and since AWT takes insets into
      account in size calculations all kinds of weird effect manifest.

      Note that I'm not even talking about changing WM *while* and AWT app
      is running. A mere fact that Enlightenment *was* ran on the display
      sometime in the past is enough to confuse AWT.

      E.g.

      . run Enlightenment
      . exit Enlightenment (without exiting X session!)
      . run, say, sawfish
      . start Notepad swing demo
      . see Notepad starting as 1-pixel wide window
