I'm using .99, but it has been a constant irritation (serious problem!) for as 
lonfg as I can remember  (beta 19 ?)

I'm using fluxbox, but it was the same on KDE,Gnome, & XFCE.

One more time folks:  will GTK2 make ANY difference ?  Anybody able to answer 
this one ? Paul ? 

Thanks for tips.... I see if I can make it work better.
