I haven't had this specific behavior with Netscape 4, but with Netscape
4.5 (and AS 1.6.6), everytime (100%) I try to edit my bookmarks
("Bookmarks/Edit Bookmarks") the dialog opens *and* its icon appears on
the desktop, but with an unusual appearance: its outline appears filled
with the color used to paint the selected window title, but it is not
really there -- it doesn't respond to events. If I minimize the
Bookmarks window, everything goes back to normal (the icon is painted
with all its colors, and it responds to events).

Anybody else experienced this?
