hey folks -

Sometimes when I'm working a lot, I have a lot of windows open. When this
happens, the buttons in my WinList become very small. Is there a way to
have the WinList expand to have multiple rows on an as needed basis? So if
you had more than 10 windows open, a new bar would be formed and new
windows would be added there. I've looked at the code and it looks like it
wouldn't be *too* hard to implement, but I don't know quite enough C to be
able to do it on my own yet. Thanks.

Also, the FAQ version provided in the distro is older than the current
one. I've modified afterstepdoc to point to the new FAQ and downloaded the
current version, so it *is* possible to update the FAQ in the distro. ;-)

Bugreports----

1) Since applying the infamous patch 9, AfterStep has been ignoring my
DecorateFrames [0/1] option in my look file. Personally, I don't like
Frames and upon loading patch 9 I received them automatically. By
commenting out that line and all other lines dealing with frames, they
didn't appear anymore.

2) Also since applying patch 9, there isn't anymore vertical spacing
between title bar buttons and the top of the title bar. I like the couple
of pixels between the top of the title bar and the top of the buttons and
I hope that can be brought back soon. I believe Sasha's idea covered this,
but I'm not quite sure.

3) This one has been around for a while. Every time I stop the Wharf and
then start it again, I get three X errors, the text of which follows:

X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  4 (X_DestroyWindow)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x4000023
  Serial number of failed request:  273
  Current serial number in output stream:  276
X Error of failed request:  BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window
parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  62 (X_CopyArea)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x2c00001
  Serial number of failed request:  145496
  Current serial number in output stream:  145512
X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  4 (X_DestroyWindow)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x3c00005
  Serial number of failed request:  4024
  Current serial number in output stream:  4027

4) My last bug report deals with asmix. The applets page doesn't list a
maintainer, so I figured I should send it here. Whenever I stop the Wharf
and then start it again, the background behind the wharf tile becomes
black where ever the xpm was transparent. This only happens if asmix is
the last button in the wharf and only if that button is asmix. I have
attached a jpeg that depicts this. This may be related to the above wharf
bug, but I doubt it.

That's it for now.
