At this time of year, I like to fire up xsnow.  It always worked before
(i.e. with xfce3), but this year it doesn't.  Googling turns up this site


where, among "Future Plans" is

"Bring back support for apps that draw directly to the root window."

Lack of such support strikes me as a serious limitation of any desktop
manager.  I'd rather lose the desktop fuctionality than lose the ability
to write to the root window!

So, for now, 'killall xfdesktop ; xsnow &" keeps me happy!
