Summary:                    Window decorations do not update properly
I'm running Solaris 10 native gnome desktop manager on a SPARC system. 
When xv(1) is on the screen, if the control panel gets covered by another
window, including xv's own image display windows, when the overlay window
is removed, the xv window does not update its display (or it fails to tell
gnome desktop manager to do this??)  This is very annoying as you must
minimize and then redisplay the window in order to see the buttons.

I have used earlier versions of xv and did not have this problem.  This
has been going on for some time, but I am just getting around to reporting
it now.  Write to me if you need any additional information.

Jeff, I've run up Solaris 10 u8 on both Sparc and x86 with the Java Desktop
R3, AKA Gnome.  I can't find fault with XV, it repaints as I'd expect. 
I've started a few other things too, (Opera, Firefox, OpenOffice.org,
VirtualBox) to give the WM some load and it still all works.

This is no help so is there anything else we can do to trace the problem?

You say earlier versions were better, can you try try the archived version

If that does work it could be the new libs or it could be the compile
options, I don't think anything else changed.  XV needs a freshen sometime
to move with newer libs, I can build a new package to see if it helps for
reasons unknown.
