It looks like the desktop alt-click function is taking
precedence.  Try shift-alt-click.  Sometimes you have
to fiddle around with things; I've used Photoshop for
years, and believe it or not, I've never used the
clone tool until I figured this out in less than 5
minutes! :)  (I prefer to copy into my clipboard
whatever I want to "clone", and just use the basic
copy/ paste method.)

Point is, think outside the box, and try other things.
 Remember PS7 wasn't meant to run on Linux (but it
magically does because of Wine); so, we're all bound
to run into wierd things in our apps that we need to
find workarounds for.

I'm not sure what you mean, but I usually press "Tab"
to make all the toolboxes go away when I don't want
them around, and "Tab" to bring them back.
