Well, I'll keep you in mind in case I have any trouble. I'd like to have
a patch pretty soon though.

Unfortunately it's not as simple as that. This modification requires a
patch to gnome-libs as well. I can understand Havoc's reluctence to add
it to gnome-libs 1.4. I will probably make available unofficial patches

I got it to work in KDE today. In fact it would work in gnome if you
were using kwin (the KDE window manager). I'm going to now work on the
