well that's really sth. i would like not  to tell (LOL) because i think it's 
very poor. 

i start an xterm and my program within the xterm with a exec call like 
that way i make shure MYROG is really within an xterm.

then i connect to the X server and then get the window id from the environement 
like  win_id=getenv("WINDOWID")  , i know i should not
trust that and instead check the tree of all windows starting from the root 
window but it's a lot more work.  

i think it might be the event propagation that is in someway and only sometimes 
"wrong" but these thing are really hard to trace.  

btw i am on linux.

thx for your help
