Hehe, not really. Just a Thinkpad built-in card. Anyway, I've changed
the size to 600x400 by default. And I'm going to add support for
remembering the last window size of course.

We've found several issues on #xfce-dev. This was one of them. I've
fixed it and uploaded a new tarball (same location).

Do we want to put it into /trunk? I would like to, but I thought I'd
