Well, yeah, my suggestion involved eliminating that, but you don't seem to be implementing quite what my suggestion was as such, not that you had any obligation to of course.

On the plus side, I don't think I can replicate Angelo's actual reported issue anymore.

Anyhow, it will take me some time to fully understand the changes, especially with the C level more involved. The multi-window problem definitely isn't fixed.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, I found it near-instantly annoying. Is the primary motivation concern about out-of-box efficiency? Otherwise I really don't get why it'd be desirable.
