Cannot move windows in passive mode

 
Hi to all.
Every time I use Xmanager in passive mode from MS Windows (then I start from a telnet session a graphical application exporting the display) I experience the same problem: the windows Xmanager opens are unmovable (there isn't the top bar, and then the windows cannot be dragged). Of course, this is a real problem when I start more then one application, because all windows will be overlapped.
Is there any setting to avoid this?
Thanks a lot

After running an xterm first, you can a window manager program to attach title bar and borders as following:

$ twm &

Or else, run Xconfig in Xmanager folder and change the window mode to "Multiple Window Mode". This will fix the problem.

It's running in multiple windows mode but the problem persists.
Why?
By the way, with twm it works.
Thanks

Some java related applications can remove the title bar. You can try to configure "Window Manager" option to "LocalOnly" in the Xconfig.

Hope to solve the problem.
