We call set_usize/set_uposition so this should be set. Does anyone else using Apple's server have this problem? Maybe something broke in beta3 (the above archived message was I think during beta2). Or maybe there's some obscure new option. If you're considering switching servers, XDarwin with WindowMaker (http://www.windowmaker.org/) seems to have happy Wing users. OroborOSX can be much slower, according to several reports we've gotten from users. > > Also, you should be able to configure passing through clicks after > > raising > > windows, instead of requiring a second click. > > I've only found how to switch to a follow-focus behaviour but not how > to stick to click-to-focus with passing the clicks to the just-raised > window. Would you know whether XDarwin/OroborX has the latter right? This comparison might be useful: http://oroborosx.sourceforge.net/comparison.html Towards the bottom it says "Of course, having 'first-click-only-raises' as the standard for *all* X11 windows can cause problems (which is why OroborOSX has options for 'Accept First Click'..." I don't know off-hand if WindowMaker has this, but it probably does. Any lack of it in Apple's X11 / quart-vm may be due to their user interface guidelines.
