Harold and Kensuke,
This test release works great, Thank you for a wonderful work.
I have a somewhat unrelated question about the -multiwindow mode. For
security reasons I like to invoke XWin with the switch
"-nolisten tcp" and I set DISPLAY to :0.0 instead of localhost:0.0.  When I
do this in multiwindow mode everything works OK,
except that I can not close applications by clicking on the x button on the
upper right corner. I can still close them if they have a menu
with an exit command in it or by using kill from xterm. Also text appears in
rxvt only if the curser is somewhere inside even if it selected.
Why is that so? Is tcp needed for full functionality of multiwindows mode?
