    Default taking JFrame title into account when calling pack()

    Hello,

    I'm wondering if there's an alternative to JFrame.pack() that takes into account the size of the title text (or maybe a flag that tell's it to take the title into account). I have a few simple GUIs that look good after calling pack() but the titles are like "Lev...", "Qui...", etc.
