I'm using Ratpoison with much success.  Myth is able to use the 'window 
size' and 'window position' configuration properties with Ratpoison, 
which never seemed to work in KDE.  Also, I could never get KDE to save 
the window settings for mythfrontend so I had to manually turn off the 
borders every restart.

I think I am missing something here, why is xrandr important?
