Hmmh, seems I can't reproduce that, but I do notice weird behaviors with
gvim windows run from a terminal

Basically, it seems that it tries to inherit the window size from the
terminal. Depending on how you configured smart placement in xfwm4, that
might be related.

Here, the smart placement is configured to be active even for small
windows. What is your smart placement setting? (in settings manager,
window manager tweaks, placement)
