The hotspots of the cursor are garbled. 

multiwindow xterm: moving the cursor from the titlebar into to window changes 
  the cursor from arrow to text-input and the cursor jumps. The bottom line of 
  the text-input cursor is now right below the title bar and everything else 
  is in the titlebar but the hotspot is in the window itself

Mozilla: cursor is arrow. You have to aim about 1 line (12px?) above what you 
  want to hit.
