On there is written, that someone has
tried to fix this bug like this - map Windows' window with X window
one to one (it was my first idea). But there is also written, that

" having a Win32 window <=> X11 window one to one mapping is not
feasible (it was done once but Alexandre removed it as part of the
window management rewrite as it lead to some problems in

Does anybody know what type of problem it was - may be unfortunately
programmer make another bug in code while solving this one??
