Subject: Some changed behaviors ...
Date: Thu, 04 Jun 2015 01:42:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Dear Jon (et al.) -- I just updated to the latest XWin and got some
different behaviors:

- In my .XWinrc file I was using MINIMIZE in the STYLES.  This now seems
   to permanently iconize a window.  If I click on the icon, it briefly
   flahses large and then iconizes again.

- When using -geometry (with xemacs in particular), the height of the
   screen seems different, and if I change the geometry height by 1, the
   height of the window does not change by 1 -- it either doesn't change,
   or changes by more than one.

In the process of playing with this I solved a long-standing mystery to
me: -iconic never worked for me on xemacs.  It turns out that it works
if I place it *first* among the command line flags, but it does not work
when placed last.  Maybe -geometry overrides it?  Anyway, it strikes me
as odd, but at least it works now.

My workaround for the MINIMIZE thing was to use -iconic on the particular
windows instead -- it does what I want anyway.  But I thought you'd want
to know about MINIMIZE being weird.  Not sure what happened with the height
thing ...

Regards -- Eliot Moss
