Regression: floating xterm created partially off screen #3606

With for_window [class="XTerm"] floating enable in my config file, new xterm windows are created partially off-screen at the top-left corner in versions 4.16 and 4.16.1. In version 4.15, they were centered. I ran git bisect between versions 4.15 and 4.16 and identified this commit as the first bad one: 128122e.

Other programs for which I have for_window ... floating enable commands in my config file aren't affected and still appear centered as I would expect (urxvt and the about dialog of Firefox).

Caveat: I was actually testing with i3-gaps, but I'm reporting this here because the commit identified by git bisect appears in i3's history. I was using a modified version of the PKDBUILD from the i3-gaps Arch Linux package when bisecting.

I think someone in IRC confirmed this issue. Please let me know if is not reproducible. I will add more information in that case.

I also experience this regression with

for_window [class="XCalc"] floating enable

and i3 version 4.16.1.
