That is what I expected, but VNC has generally worked better for me than Xpra.

Reasonably consistent -- and, I'm not certain what to remove to delete them, so I delete the .xpra,
.winswitch folders and .:XX-fakexinerama entries.

It appears to happen when I close an xpra windows by clicking the window "x" in the corner (or when
an application window crashes).  So, if I am running xterm in xpra, if I "exit" the window will
close cleanly, but if I close the window via the "x" on the window bar, I will have an unknown
session left behind.

No build OR runtime issues.  I think I created a dependency issue with rpmbuild -- I built an RPM on
13.2 and then installed on 13.1.  I am guessing that my build environment specified libwep5 as a
dependency, and 13.1 repositories have libwep4.

Thank you for all of your work on this project.  I have become reliant on Winswitch for daily use.
