twm makes windows too wide

Created attachment 100364 Patch to correct the behavior
When placing windows using right-click (to make them extend all the way to the bottom of the screen), twm will make the windows wider than their preferred width by twice the frame width, (unless the window is so far to the right, that size is clamped to fit on the screen).
This is especially noticeable when placing a console, Emacs, or some other window for which you expect exactly 80 character width, but get 81 characters, if you frame width is at least half a character.
I have taken the liberty of providing a patch
