In which case the answer is similarly simple if you remember the write a 
primitive that returns the "outer window size". E.g.,

   delta := DisplayScreen outerWindowSize "outer window size"
              - DisplayScreen actualScreenSize. "client area"
   DisplayScreen outerWindowSize: myExtent + delta.
