presentations outside of frame panes

    I would like to pop up a temporary window over one of my application
    frame panes and display active presentations associated with that frame.

    I tried this once in the past with no success - i.e. the presentations
    were not mouse-sensitive - and resorted to using TRACKING-POINTER.
    Now I really need the functionality of a large set of my presentations
    and don't wish to duplicate the effort. 

    Any pointers?

I think that if you make the temporary window share the same input with
the application frame (all of whose panes share a single input buffer),
then the right thing should just magically happen.

Try SETFing CLIM:STREAM-INPUT-BUFFER of the temp window to
CLIM:STREAM-INPUT-BUFFER of one of the application's panes, and see what
