    [gnome] Re: resizing emacs freezes desktop

    I had the same problem. compiz.real goes at 100%. By killall -9 compiz.real the problem was solved - somewhat (Not sure how to restart it correctly). In the meantime the problem is gone. I upgraded...

    [gnome] Re: windows with oversized geometry

    There were some misunderstandings of geometry specs in Emacs some time ago. Code got written with it and now nobody dares to correct that. This does it:

    [gnome] Re: windows with oversized geometry

    In the meantime I tried xnest. But it has exactly the same problem. GNOME insists on decorating the root window with a title bar. Someone asked a related question some time ago but did not receive...

    [gnome] Re: windows with oversized geometry

    I succeeded to make panels ago away, by clicking them together (step 1). They still remain as a tiny
