    A hacked solution to the Vista flickering issue.

    wilkie authored
    It does seem that Vista has a serious flaw in its compositing engine
    when it comes to updating transparent windows. This does indeed
    seem to be a counter-intuitive bug, but it has not been fixed in
    Vista, even though it does not exist in either XP or Windows 7.
    The bug exists due to it drawing transparent windows over those
    of higher z-order without first, you know, compositing them like
    the WS_EX_COMPOSITED flag should suggest. There may be a subtle but
    better way of fixing this problem, but with whyday approaching, this
    will have to do.
    For information from other people annoyed by similar problems:
    The solution is dirty but simple. Do the compositing ourselves. Turn
    off the transparent flag and ensure the paint order is bottom to top.
    The WS_EX_COMPOSITED flag does seem to order the paint order correctly
    and overlapping windows do not interfere when not transparent.
    For each canvas, we have a double buffer. This is how it would be in the
    background anyway. Each time we update the canvas, we copy the image to its
    parents and to each child. Thus, every backbuffer will contain the image that
    will appear on the screen to the user in the region of the canvas after a full
    redraw. This will simulate the transparent effect that the slots seem
    to assume.
    This will work in most cases with just inefficiency over the
    current solution. It may cause some slight graphical glitches with native
    controls since they are still marked as transparent, although Windows
    certainly has issues with unique uses of the native widgets anyway, sigh.
    If they are truly a problem, one could remove the WS_EX_TRANSPARENT bit
    when shoes_world->os.doublebuffer is TRUE.
    The solution is only activated for Windows version 6.0 (Vista) as can be seen
    by the version identification shim in the app initialization code. XP and
    Windows 7 will work as they have before. An extra boolean has been added to
    the application OS structure that is set when Vista is detected and turns on
    the manual compositing mode, which may be useful if the problem comes up in
    other interesting versions of Windows. An extra field in the slot OS structure
    has to do with not being able to reliably get the parent window using the
    Windows API, or at least I was having issues with it.
    With this fix, hackety-hack runs perfectly fine in Vista SP2 with Aero Basic.
    Which brings up another point that one could _not_ use this technique if they
    also detected that Aero was not in use.
    I think I will go shower now. Ugh.

    Sorted out window-resizing-behavior. Spec is the following:

    ashbb authored>300, :height=>300){}
    User can resize window smaller with no limit as same as Raisins.
   >300, :minwidth=>200){}
    User can resize width-size smaller until 200pix and height-size with no limit (open window with default 500pix height and given 300pix width).
    _why added `app->minwidth` and `app->minheight` in the shoes/app.c.
    The commit is 100f158
    But they were not completed. Now revised a little and released with the above spec.
