How come it used to work before? (or didn't it, and we just didn't notice?)

The bug was here from the beginning. As you said, we just didn't notice.

BView::Bounds() is often used, and so it would really be nice if we could use a cached value.

Yup, that's why I wrote you guys.

Couldn't we just introduce another message that the server sends in case of an update?

Well, that's what I thought first, but we'll be back to the discussion we had a few days ago - one message for each view or a single one which contains data for all views which had their frame changed. And that's what I proposed in the first mail today.

One that is only forwarded to the frame events if that flag is set?

We have to update every view that had its frame modified on the server side, not only those views which have B_FRAME_EVENTS flag.

Or just a broadcast a message to all views of that window to invalidate their cached data?

Yes, this is quite a good idea.

Now we have to decide which of the 2 options to implement. Both seem to be quite good. The first one uses only one message but has to search a view for every "_token". The second uses more messages but does not have to search the view tree. Also it is simpler.

I for one, vote with the first approach, because we already have 80% of code in place(the code Stephan wrote for B_VIEW_RESIZED/MOVED).
