I Sort of was paying attention to this on the rox mailing list i can't 
get this to happen, i don't have any of the compatibility options 
checked, nothing untoward seems to happen, i think i have hovered over 
and changed everything i could think of? i'm using cvs rox and openbox, 
so i dunno? i'm a little confused at how to reproduce it though still.
