Bug is now fixed in gail CVS and cooker package. I'll issue a bugfix
update for it if we uses 2007.0 as basis (see below)
I'm not sure I understand what the scroll option on a scrollbar is
supposed to do.

Indeed, but widget edge stickiness when creating facades is really
great. And since many things here are still at the demo level, it is
best to have better

metacity .xml file is probably the best way to get a nice description of
the WM theme (I have specs but they are a little difficult to understand
without the various elements we did internally and I'm not sure they are
up to date with the last version of Ia Ora, available in 2007.0).
I've started on a theme and a color file but I must confess digging in
fvwm verbose documentation isn't my cup of tea :)
I'll write a separate mail with my work in progress so you can use it
(but I guess you can start from scratch much faster without my WIP :)

Well, it seems it has been forgotten when we switched to modular xorg.
But I know who to blame :) Gustavo, I know you are subscribed to this

On a i945, I'm not seeing the problem either, so I guess it is specific
to i810. Probably not worth enabling this workaround everytime. But it
would be great to add this problem and its workaround in documentation.

It is still under discussion here with marketing. I'll be able to give
you an answer end of this week or next week. For now, it is better to
stick with 2007.0 which is stable. Moreover, cooker will soon see X.org
7.2 + mesa 6.5.2 ..

Good idea, I'll try to post my next remarks / questions in separate
