Ok, I have most of the bugs that bug me bugged out now =)
Just one last thing...
There appears to be some sort of edge resistance/screen wrap code in the
retina driver for the mouse
built in... It gets vary annoying when I have a 3x2 virtual screen in fvwm.
It seems that it kicks in if the mouse is moving any faster than 5mm per
second =( so the cursor stops about 2 cm away from the edge (or more if I
go faster). Then if I keep moving it it will wrap around and come out on
the other side of the screen.
This is an interesting feature, but is annoying for 2 reasons: It prevents
the use of virtual screens since I can't get to another screen unless I use
the small window manager, and to make the cursor wrap around, you have to
do the 100 mile trek with your mouse!
I took a quick scan through the code, but there's not enough comments for
me to see what's going on =(
