I mostly don't want to have to deal with it at all, mainly because it takes a decent amount of work to execute that correctly, for no real gain, since I don't think normal users are likely to do this sequence anyway. The complaint was from our QA team that naturally tries to doing weird, crazy things to break the application. 

And I actually just did some client side decoration recently for this application, and there's issues with that, namely that there are issues with custom windows on Windows related to the window shadow and a small 6 pixel band. See my earlier post from 8/19/2019: https://lists.qt-project.org/pipermail/interest/2019-August/033636.html, so in that instance I was forced to choose between having a window without a shadow (which looks weird) or having the small white band above my custom window buttons (which also looks weird).

But for me to be able to ignore this, I'm probably going to need to prove something along the lines of "this is normal Windows behavior, not a bug in my application". But after light testing with other applications, as well as the simple application I uploaded here, it appears that this might be a Qt/Windows problem, not necessarily "all Windows applications do this".
