Just a small update, I finally got a picture taken with xwd.


At least the xwud program can show that properly, xv was too dark.

The problem occurs at the bottommost line, just look. And since I haven't
been able to reproduce this with any other window manager, but also on two
locations with XFree 4.0.2 + wmx, I'm guessing it's something iffy going
on in the wmx internals.

I'd really appreciate if A) someone else would tell me I'm not alone with
this problem, and/or B) tell me what's wrong and/or C) could provide a fix ;)
