nope. What I meant, was that window manager won't work with my mouse-keyboard 
gestures. And possibly with underlying X of different resolution. Though 
links reports
DirectFB/InputDevice's: both IMPS/2 Mouse and Keyboard 0.9 (convergence 
blablabla GmbH) as in place (with Single Application Core, though. But I 
don't think I'd need a multi-application dfb just to watch other windows on 
my desktop.

and hidden details of this operation, please? How do I do it? And why, for 
Christ sake? What's wrong with whatever keymap/keytable is already loaded?

yeah... mousedrag-press Alt won't work, need probably to put all that 
VESA-compatible crap where it belongs and refine my native 2048x1536 instead.

uhu. with the same result.

Look. How about making that nice 3D-shaded pointer of yours glowing when it 
hits a clickable link? Links guys have experienced tremendous difficulties to 
underline clickable links on pages, or just switch cursor form to "finger". 
How about making your cursor glowing instead?
