Package: mutter
Version: 3.38.1-2
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

I noticed that all windows are 26px wider than the requested minimum width.
This is an important issue because it causes windows to not fit in screens that
did fit previously. Debian on mobile is especially affected by this issue
because many apps have the requested min width of 360px that is the width of
the screen of the Librem 5. Those apps get a width of 386px and don't fit on
the screen making them hardly usable.

There is an upstream bug report of this issue that is now fixed:
