[Solved]awesome wm: xterm/urxvt maximized windows let a few pixels gap

I have a strange behavior with both xterm and urxvt in the awesome windows manager : there is a few unwanted pixels of margin (~5/7 pixels) on the right and bottom side of the xterm/urxvt windows. In layout maximized, it result in seeing the background on the side. With some other layouts the results is even worst with visible gap between the windows, especially if there is lots of xterm/urxvt windows. Other applications windows are working fine.

URxvt.internalBorder 5

this line removes the margin at the bottom and reduce the margin on the right.

URxvt.internalBorder 7

this line removes the margin on the right.
But if I cycle through the windows layouts when I'm back to maximized the wrong margins are back anyway.

    end)

    if not startup then
        -- Set the windows at the slave,
        -- i.e. put it at the end of others instead of setting it master.
        -- awful.client.setslave(c)

        -- Put windows in a smart way, only if they does not set an initial position.
        if not c.size_hints.user_position and not c.size_hints.program_position then
            awful.placement.no_overlap(c)
            awful.placement.no_offscreen(c)
        end
    end
end)

client.add_signal("focus", function(c) c.border_color = beautiful.border_focus end)
client.add_signal("unfocus", function(c) c.border_color = beautiful.border_normal end)
-- }}}

Any idea how to fix that ?

If you disable honoring size hints you may want to use rxvt-unicode-patched from the AUR. Otherwise you may and probably will sometimes get artifacts on the bottom of your screen:

Thanks demian for the information. For now I'm satisfied enough with the result without this patch. I will try it later when (if) I get bored...
