Eterm:  Warning:  Window Manager does not support MWM hints.  Bypassing
window manager control for borderless window.

After updating Xorg from 6.8.2 to 6.9, borderless Eterm's(urxvt as well)
don't work anymore in XFCE4.  I've recompiled all of the XFCE parts, and
Eterm, and no change.  It also doesn't work under TWM (not sure if it should
or not...)  I'm unable to grab focus on the terminal which does appear, but
seems "frozen", unable to accept any input.  truss Eterm -x  shows excatly
the same message.  Both terminals will run fine if run normally.  I'm at a
loss here.  Hints, suggestions?
