Absolutely.  Install windowmaker or a similarly broken WM on another
platform and it should do the exact same thing.  It works fine in all
modern window managers, on all platforms.

I would support a patch to allow GHOST to detect a broken window manager
and then make a choice to fullscreen by default, but hamstringing every
window manager on an entire platform by default simply because a few
people run old WMs that don't play nice with GHOST?  That seems like a
rather bad idea.

Any GHOST coders want to leap in the mix and help out with this one?  Or
provide some hints on where the magic resizing is done?
