(aka bug3)
 >> from a chat ...
    20:03 <spock-jab> I've just added an ebuild for aterm-1.00_beta2 to 
our CVS. As for bug3, I don't think it's fixed. I can replicate the 
issue with aterm-1.00_beta2 while using fluxbox. I believe the problem 
manifests itself when the height of the aterm window is forced to be a 
number which is not a multiple of the height of a single line (when you 
resize the window by hand, it changes it's size in "steps", so that you 
never get an empty half of a line at the bottom).

Gentoo AfterStep bugs to check out:
NONE!  (I'm doing my job here!)

AfterStep bugs/features I'm curious about:
3. I've got an issue with my cedega system tray.  I don't know if it's 
related to concern #4, but when I run Steam (counterstrike) in cedega, 
it makes a tray icon, 16x16 or 24x24 or whatever... and when I swallow 
cedega's system tray, it gets crushed to one pixel tall.  I don't know why.

4. WindowMaker dockapps in general, as well as some unaffiliated 
wharfapps, try to draw on some sort of offscreen window.  I don't know 
why or how they got the idea to do so, but it causes some issues.  Most 
of these applications provide a -bw (broken windowmanager) commandline 
option, which works well, but I don't like the idea that my WM is 
"broken".  :D  So I bring it up.  Applications that feature this issue:  
wmclockmon, wmmailmon, etc.  I use wmclockmon.  I even got a patch made 
for it so it'd use it's process name as it's window name, so I could 
swallow multiple ones, by just linking the executable. :D
