Cool.  I probably don't have enough time to debug SDL, so I might settle 
for a recommendation on a new window manager which seems to work better 
than FVWM2?  I am pulling down ratpoison now, but I just need something 
which can boot from init and then run an xterm (for debugging) and run 
some startup scripts as it comes up (to disable the screen saver)

Any thoughts?

In the meantime I have added some debugging lines to myth and I will see 
if I can see what's going on.  Best guess is the the top left corner is 
not being set at 0,0. 

By the way I am seeing the same thing in Mythbrowser - the screen is 
offset upwards and left by the width of the window border.  Haven't 
investigated though
