I am taking this item off the To Do list. Thanks so much for fixing it.
I tested your fix and it works fine with twm. Doing a 'startkde' on a
remote box does not fail like twm does... it still works and has weird
behavior. I wonder if there is something else that we need to do to
work with modern window managers? In any case, your fix is better than
what we had before. :)
