multiwindow problem with kterm
Fri Jan 17 00:36:00 GMT 2003

Hello Harold,

Yes, I'm quite certain that I have commented out 'twm' from my
startxwin.bat script.
Xterm seems to run just fine, so I think this is something to with
kterm or the multiwindow mode.

::Hi all,
::First of all, thank you for your great work.
::I'm having problem with the new mulitiwindow mode when used with kterm,
::a Japanese capable version of xterm. Rootless mode works flawlessly.
::If I only have one kterm running, everything seems to be normal.
::But if I start a second kterm up, things gets funny.
::It seems that, the two running kterms are trying to copy each other's
::contents on to their own window, and gets messed up.
::If I start up third or more kterms, everything comes back to normal again.
::BTW, I'm using the Test-Server 71. Kterm was compiled using patches from
::FreeBSD's ports system and a cygwin patch off the net.
::Is there anything that I could help to solve this problem?
::Thank you,
::  Haro
