screenshots

I've seen several screenshots on the web where the shot includes part of the
start menu expanded.  How is this accomplished?

The only way I know of to make a screen capture is to bring up an xterm and
run "xwd -out somefile.xwd", then convert somefile.xwd using the Gimp.
Unfortunately, this only allows for a window-grab or a full-screen grab, and
requires clicking on whatever you want grabbed.  Hence, no ability to pop up
the start menu.

If anyone knows how to get a screenshot _with_ the start menu in it, please
let me know!

TIA,
Jordy
