Didn't check the code... but from past experience I only remember  
window managers giving different results back to X11. Even at MacOSX  
here I can't discover the final trick... you can find commented out  
code in Ghost-darwin for such a patch too, which just didnt work  

Plus... the -w option is not for fullscreen, but for borderless. It is  
very simple just to call blender with "-p x y xsize ysize" to get the  
exact situation you prefer. Why hack this in ghost?
