    problem when opaque window move/resize is disabled


    When I disable the opaque window move/resize to make a border appear instead of displaying the whole window, all the other windows stop refreshing untill you release the window. Is this a bug?

    You aren't using the "kdrive" X-server, are you? Last time I tested the kdrive X-server that happened in fluxbox no matter how it worked when I started xorg.
