You announced working on the unmanaged window problem in September 2001 IIRC, 
but I guess you didn't so far? Wouldn't, for the time being, a Cedega-like 
approach be feasible? They seem to ignore 'chromeless' windows and handle 
them just like regular windows (with window decoration and all, for Steam for 
example) - this is obviously not correct, but it would at least work 'till 
someone comes up with a real fix...?
