It would appear that if minh or minw are set to zero,
the value is ignored, falling back to the fltk/window manager defaults.

maxw/maxh document zero as a special value, but not minw/minh.

Current docs read:
minw and minh are the smallest the window can be.

Suggested modification:
minw and minh are the smallest the window can be. A value of zero for either will cause that value to be ignored, retaining the default behavior  for that dimension.

From a documentation standpoint, I'd suggest that there is an
ambiguity with respect to minw (res minh) == maxw (res maxh) == 0,
which should be clarified.

From a usability standpoint, I'd suggest that it be resolved
in such a way that size_range(W, 0) means "the minimum width shall be W,
the minimum height shall be 0 (i.e., no minimum),"  similarly
for size_range(0, H).

Documentation issue; 0 (and values smaller than the minimum size supported by the window manager/system) are generally ignored or "clipped".

Fixed documentation, stating that minw and minh must be greater than 0.
