Ok, I see that.  This code still is not working properly, though. 
What seems to be happening is the position of the window is being 
shifted by the amount of space the window manager decoration takes up. 
  It shifts it up by the height of the title bar.

In order to get it to work "properly" for me I had to comment out 
lines 380 and 381:


So something with the player_bounds QRect is getting whacked and not 
adjusting for the actual window manager border decoration sizes.
