First off, I accidentally deleted a message with another
bug report. Fortunately, I remembered what it was :)
Anyway, thanks a lot for the note and I am sorry I cannot
reply to you directly.

Now, all this stuff is true. I put the asmail-1.1 onto already which fixes these:
        - stupid mistake caused -insecure be ignored
	- implemented -geometry switch (I forgot to last time)
	- the color may be multiple words in quotes

For the cautious: I cannot sign it at this moment,
I will do that tomorrow, maybe. Here is the hash so
you can check it:

Yes, I noticed it too. Unfortunately, I have no idea
why this happens. I can speculate wildly about the
possible cause but I do not know what it is. If someone
knows - let me know and I'll fix it.

This is not particularly possible, is it? What we can
do is to allow for the background pixmap to be supplied
in a file and we handle it with Shape extensions to get
the transparency. I think this may be a good idea and
I will implement it (or at least try it out).

You are welcome. Thanks for all the bugs and sorry about them.
