clim 1.1 questions

    I've just started using clim 1.1, and I must say it's much nicer than 1.0 was.
    But I've run into a few problems that maybe some of you climmers out there 
    have already solved.

    CLIM 1.1
    Lucid 4.0.2
    sun sparc

    - Scrolling a partially occluded CLIM window seems to leave behind blank areas.
      Looks like allow-graphics-exposures needs to be set down in xlib or something.

I noticed the problem on Genera, when scrolling from left to right or vice versa
some blank vertical area (up to 8 pixels wide or so, and the whole window in height)
are left on the screen. Is it that what you have in mind?
Please contact again, if so. I've written a patch for that. 

    - How to notice when a window is iconified or deiconified.

    - How to open a window stream with :edges-from :mouse.

    - How to destroy a toplevel window.  Deleting a window from twm causes all sorts of
      nasty things to happen.

    - How to disable the right click menu on a command menu item (where the only entry in the
      popmenu is the solitary command).

We hate that one, too. Look at the variable clim::*presentation-menu-translator*, it contains
the translator that is responsible for that behavior.
Don't set it to NIL, then you will run into trouble. Set it to a translator that does nothing
or that is never applicable.
