There are a number of problems.
Here's my personal view of the problems, and pending fixes:
Alexandre has re-factored the patch to move more code into the x11drv.
Photoshop 6 seems would function, but would get no pressure, as the
messages were passed to no-existant/null windows.
Painter 5 couldn't draw properly, due to mis-calculation of screen coords.
I beleive the re-factoring was more of a hold-up to release than
the bugs I discovered.
I also have some extremely verbose trace code that I could add to this
patch, although it uses indentations. I used this code to do some
debugging on the problems i described above.
I'm about to send an e-mail Alexandre to see if he can resurrect an old
patch that Aric sent to me, that contained the re-factored code.
Hope this helps.
I wanted to post a status update/patch review after applying the patch,
but this is as good a time as any to break radio silence.
