OK; that predates the introduction of the resize restrictions.

This suggests that the WM ought to allow the window to be resized.
When resize is (intentionally) inhibited, xprop should show:
program specified size: 450 by 400
program specified minimum size: 450 by 400
program specified maximum size: 450 by 400
Can you try modifying src/display/devices/XDRIVER/XDRIVER24/Client.c,
line 22. Currently, it should read:
szhints->flags = PSize;
Settings worth trying include
szhints->flags = PPosition | PSize;
szhints->flags = USPosition | USSize;
szhints->flags = 0;
Let me know which of these (if any) work.
