 	OK, I haven't been *completely* satisfied with ratpoison.  My 
tvout setup doesn't do overscan/underscan adjustments, so when an xterm is 
fullscreen I can't see the bottom line.  I've gotten around it by using 
the 'defpadding' option in ratpoison.  Haven't figured out how to get it 
in the .config for it, but I do this when I need to see the bottom of the 

ctrl-t, :
defpadding 20 20 20 20

I think it makes 'fullscreen' have 20 pixels less all the way around.
