Can you see this message when opening Eterm?
Eterm: Warning: Window Manager does not support MWM hints.
Bypassing window manager control for borderless window.
I'm a Debian user, my computer is an AMD K6 300Mhz 3DNow, I used to
build things from source in my Celeron 500Mhz but in this "new"
computer I compiled gcc 3.3 and it took 9 hours to complete (the
kernel takes from 4 to 5 hours to complete), that's why I use Debian
now and love apt-get.
Maybe the svn version has already corrected this problem.
Xfce 18.104.22.168 (includes xfwm)
