openbsd: moving windows w/out using top bar

have you ever had the problem where you can't move a window because its top bar (the one you usually grab) is off an accessible screen? well, i've got this problem when i spawn remote X sessions on openbsd 3.3.

when i spawn an X session, sometimes things in the window will "maximize" the window and render the top bar inaccessible. does anyone know a command to move the window w/out closing it? i tried various mouse clicks + shift, alt, ctrl, etc. to no avail.

thx for reading,

just in case somebody else reads this and wants to know, it's the
same as linux. hold down alt and left click, hold and drag the window.
