2: Another issue is that my .Xresources is not being read
This is to say, I have
...as the first two items, and it does not always produce black xterms when
opening, though it sometimes does. I also can't identify a consistent cause
for this behavior.
Is it just the first xterm that this is the case for? Or is it the same
for xterms that you start up after X is already running. It should really
only be the case for the first one if at all. If it is, then maybe I
should make the sleep() longer than 2 seconds until we really figure out
an interrupt-driven solution for that.
It is indeed only the case for the first one; command-N produces a normal
Also, this is running on a 1.67GHz Powerbook G4, so it's beginning to feel a
bit slow anyway...so for those computers which can barely handle Leopard, a
longer sleep() is probably in order...I haven't seen the "sometimes wrong"
xterm on my more modern powermac g5.
3: Focus just...drops sometimes. Like, I'll be typing, and then the
window loses focus, and then the window regains focus. Not a huge deal,
but I'm losing several keystrokes...I'd really like to know where they're
going. This could, of course, not be X11's fault, but I'm not using any
This is probably not X11's fault as X11 doesn't give focus to anything
else. Something else is likely stealing focus.
It seems as if other applications into which I frequently type would also
suffer (e.g., text typed into gmail or an IM window), but they don't. I'll
start tracking which applications are open when this occurs.
