I am on 24 or 32 bit mode, so I guess I will live with the occassional crash
(which so far only occurs on startup or when I restart the window manager).
alt+tab does not seem to cause crashes. But onto the next point. For some
reason, my middle button (a wheel, actually) does not perform the paste
action, forcing me to press 1+3. Is this built-in to the server or is there
a configuration file I have missed?
