rxvt works right by default, but if you use the new version, which can
be pseudo-transparent (option "-tr" - must be compiled therefore), it's
the same as with aterm or everything else based on it. "rxvt" focuses
right, "rxvt -tr" not.

The border wmx is using to show the focus seems to be a never updated
snapshot of the display-background behind this border on start-up - so
if I'm carrying the window around it shows something from an other part
of the display - and no focus (hm - that's not 100% correct - you still
see the focus on the close- and minimize-button).

Does anyone know EPIwm? They make a list like that:

| jo@planet ~> cat .epiwm/style 
[ ... ]
| "gkrellm" NoTitle NoBorder Sticky WindowListSkip
| "tkgoodstuff" NoTitle NoBorder Sticky WindowListSkip

It's an easy (?) solution to make a pretty desktop (and the biggest
whish I have to wmx ...).

That what I wanted to say with my little story one mail before ;-)
