since resizing the gem window doesnt acutally seem to change the size of
the area being rendered (even after stopping/starting rendering), you are
going to have to know the screen size in your patch and set it in the
window. but as for getting the window in the right place: most
windowmanagers will let you setup default display properties for certain
windows (determined by title, or other features). with sawfish it's all
done in the gui (gnome control centre thing) in the "matched windows" 
section. you would just tell it that you want the gem window (conveniently
always titled gem) to be maximised, and rendered as borderless.  then
tadah, you are rendering to the entire display.

you will probably want to verse yourself with the control keeys for
navigating your windowmanager, so that you can kill the window, or push 
it to the back. and get back to normality.
