 	The only ratpoison setting I tried to mess with was to fix the 
overscan my tvout stuff does.  With ratpoison, whatever window is active, 
it is made fullscreen.  I also believe that if a new window is drawn, it 
becomes active and is thus fullscreen.  Toggling from one to the other 
requires a "screen-like" keystroke... 'Ctrl-t, 0' for the 0th window, etc. 
Pulling up an xterm is 'Ctrl-t, n' for a New window.

 	Hope that helps.... all I can suggest is to give it a try.  It's 
about as lightweight as a window manager can be.
