	maxHeight, width, and height members of the WmInfo struct. Check to
	ensure that a new toplevel window size is not larger than the maxsize
	or smaller than the minsize when updating the geometry at idle time.
	Pass new width and height values to the UpdateSizeHints method so that
	it can properly set the window min and max sizes for a window that
	cannot be resized by the user. This fixes a bug where the window
	resizes back to the original size when the user clicks on the window
	* win/tkWinWm.c (UpdateGeometryInfo): Fixup comments and
	initialization for the minWidth, minHeight, maxWidth, maxHeight, width,
	and height members of the WmInfo struct. Check to ensure that a new

	* generic/tkGrid.c (GridStructureProc, ConfigureSlaves): Check for a
	NULL masterPtr and slavePtr in the GridStructureProc code to ensure
	that a Gridder created before some error condition is ignored when it
	comes to geometry calculations. This approach closely matches the pack
	implementation. Keep track of a -in argument to a grid command in order
	to detect the case of an already gridded widget that wants to change
	some options. The previous implementation could make repeated and
	unnecessary calls to Tk_ManageGeometry. Replace use of "parent" with
	"master" in comments throughout the file.
	* generic/tkPack.c (PackStructureProc): Check for a NULL masterPtr
	before other checks so that a slave created under certain error
	conditions is cleaned up properly. Replace use of "parent" with
	"master" in comments throughout the file.
	* generic/tkPlace.c (CreateSlave, ConfigureSlave, SlaveStructureProc):
	Don't call Tk_ManageGeometry in CreateSlave since this was causing
	incorrect results in some error cases. Rework the ConfigureSlave method
	so that slave setup is done in one place. The call to Tk_ManageGeometry
	was added to the one place where a slave is setup. When a slave is
	configured but the master is not changed, simply goto the
	scheduleLayout label. Check for a NULL master in SlaveStructureProc for
	the sake of readability.
