Weird inconsistency in Xmanagers processing of Windows' WM_PAINT messages.

 
When using Xmanager in conjunktion with VirtuaWin (latest
version 2.7.1 and predecessor 2.5 testet for that issue)
with two X-Windows open on two different desktops, but
with some common overlapping space (if you don't mind
that they lay on different virtual desktops) Xmanager
acts sometimes if they share the same desktop and omits
redrawing the space "overlapped" by the other Xmanger
windows on WM_PAINT messages.

Since this problem doesn't occur with other applications,
it seems to be a Xmanager issue rather than a VirtuaWin
problem.

By the way, backing store is set to "When Requested".

Re: Weird inconsistency in Xmanagers processing of Windows' WM_PAINT messages.

 
Unfortunately Xmanager have a problem with the tools which manage virtual desktop. Xmanager doesn't paint the window that is obscured by another X window. It is a performance reason.

We will consider to handle this case in future version.

Thanks for your feedback.
