Okay, sorry if this is a bit of a newbie question, but how do I apply
patches?  I have the source code and the patches sitting waiting, but I
don't know which directory the patches are supposed to be in before
applying them.  Never used patch before :(
I have read the man page for patch but it didn't really help...

Whoa!  Balloons!  The offset was set to +1, I have my winlist at the
bottom of the screen so setting it to -1 did the trick.  Very nice indeed!

This works great, but is there any way to get rid of the highlight on the
titlebar (like the start menu title bar)?
