A window manager is allowed to ignore a client's hints; a window
manager that does so is not so much *bad* as impolite.
Sometimes there are legitimate reasons to ignore a hint, such as when
a tiling WM is asked for a specific geometry.
I grant that I can't think of a reason to ignore this specific hint --
the resize increment -- other than the WM designer not wishing to go
to the trouble of implementing support for hints (e.g. tinywm).
