I'm trying to get IIsi ADB to work (and fighting tooth and nail), I'm
trying to survive with a new swimming pool where my bedroom used to be,
and I still have my real job.  I'll try to figure out what's up with the
three button emulation between MRG compiles.

Naw.  This is a bug either in my code or in the README; I've forgotten
enough detail that I don't remember which.

Try fvwm, a motif-like virtual manager, or maybe even olvwm, the Open
Look virtual window manager.  I haven't tried compiling them, but they
should behave pretty well.  I personally use 9wm at work, the 8 1/2-ish
window manager; very minimal and it does not get in my way.  I hate to
say it, but I don't run X Windows at home much because I need the CPU
for compiling MacBSD kernels.
