You understood enough! I never could find *"infocenter", so there was no way
to search PS output to see a relevant name. Thanks for that! :-)

The result is a double-edged surprise. The minimum window widths are
nominally narrower, but the minimum heights are taller, and they are
cluttered by a needless left column that significantly counters the point of
having the individual applets. The old (quoted) and the new (below) have much
too much minimum whitespace:

The excess approaches sensible as display density increases:
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
