Hi Auke

Thank u for the quick answer...  well what can I say ...

I do the update almost every second day ... and  .. since a long time ago .. 
I ve not seen that Xfce4
has been in the list of the packages to be updated ... (xfce4 was neither 
this time in the update list)

Im pretty sure that the problem is not related to gentoo directly ...   ( I 
mean ... why would it be a problem of gentoo ... since Xfce is created by 
the xfce4 developers ... Gentoo just includes it to its portage nothing more 
... they dont apply changes to the xfce4 packages )

Well I can tell you  I use  the Xfce4

To explain my problem more with more precision ... I want to show you 2 
screenshots 1 before and 1 after ....   (normal)    ( suddenly streched )

Sorry ... I wished to be more precise ... but I dont write down the list of 
the packages my system updates ... soo I cant remember what exactly may 
cause this difference ....

Ahh btw .. Auke  what did you mean with the    ML FAQ ?

I use already the pan Newsreader ... and Im subscribed to the gentoo    
gmane.linux.gentoo.user.german section ...

Thank u soo much for everything :) atm
