Harold, Earle, Takuma,

I am still facing the same problems that  Brian reported earlier (when you
click on one xterm to bring it to foreground, the
window contents does not get refreshed unless you move the cursor out of
the window and back etc.). For details:

System: windows XP on Thinkpad T23, with TweakUI.
The xorg-x11-xwin version is:
Command line options I have tried are:
xwin -clipboard -multiwindow
xwin -clipboard -multiwindow +bs

Earle's comments on the web on March 31)said that the fix had been checked
in. I am not sure if the fix is in the above version,
which was released on April 27.

Is there some other package that I should be updating?

Hi Harold, Takuma, Brian,

I have commited a 1-line fix (ok, 2 with comments) for this: when a
WM_WM_ACTIVATE is received by the winmultiwindowwm.c local event processor
call the X restacker.  I tested it and it fixes this (under the X-mouse in
XP's TweakUI, can't test under 98 or 2K ) and it also fixes the problem
where windows aren't restacked when you bring up the window menu on a
lower-level window.

I have discovered what I believe to be a bug in the window manager code
part of the cygwin/X server.  It is an interaction between the
point-to-focus setting in Windows (a.k.a. "Activation follows mouse" in
TweakUI) and raising windows.
