This behaviour comes from a little bug that causes the buttons to be offset by 
the same amount the window is offset. So they disappear from the viewable 

I don't know nothing about that xinerama/windowing stuff. 
So the patch that is included was made by 'trial and error' coding and seems 
to work on both my xinerama/nonxinerama boxes. 

If I broke smth with it, please tell me :-)

take care, have fun
