But ‘x_display_pixel_height’ returns the value of 'HeightOfScreen' which
is what we need for the one monitor case.

My concern was less that ‘x-display-monitor-attributes-list’ would not
assign a value to max_y.  My concern was that that value could be wrong.

Anyway.  Better install your initial patch then.  It's cleaner and we'll
see soon enough whether it causes any problems.

Have you tried with a frame that spans both monitors?
