D'oh! Well, I just went off for a bit, and I wasn't sure if I'd left the
X video-blanker on, so I turned off my monitor. When I powered it back up,
the X screen came up centered and fitting within the screen boundaries.
I'd say it's something my monitor isn't grokking. Sorry to have bothered
Now, another stupid question/observation :
How come the only keys on my spiffo ALPS keyboard that auto-repeat under X
are the damn Windows95(tm) flying windows keys? I've used 'xev' to watch
the events, and it's true. I hold down the space bar, I get one event
(KeyPress Space) when I push it down, and one (KeyRelease Space) when I
release it. I hold down the SPIFFO Windows key, and I get KeyPress /
KeyRelease messages as fast as the XTerm window can scroll.
Weird -- I think it's the keyboard, though. I assume the autorepeat
works on other machines, yeah?
