Hi Trygve and Karl,
This would be a good issue to make a mantis report.
It's clearly something that needs to be tracked.
I've looked at the system window internals. I bet that
some serious study will need to be made before a
stable repair can be made. So a mantis report would be
a good place to collect analysis and repair attempts.
It would also be good to have a user story. What would
be a simple description of the way it should behave?
Yours in curiosity and service, --Jerome Peace
