Excuse me?  There was nothing at all inflamatory about the content of my
e-mail.  The user had a problem with how Openbox was handling both heads
of a Dual Head system and indicated that they were going to try another
window manager to see if the problem was due to Openbox or something
else (normal troubleshooting procedure).  I simply suggested a window
manager that I knew handled Dual Head well.

If you want an inflamatory response take a look at your own message
concerning Blackbox.

Members of the Blackbox mailing list frequently use other window
managers (and suggest such use to other users) in the course of trying
to isolate whether their problem is with Blackbox, the application, or
something else.
