What it the app hangs? Then you're stuck and you can't move any of the windows around. We did menus that way because they have special requirements (attached and torn off). Although I'd prefer that the WM handled the menu title bars as well.


 Window manager can hang, too. :)
 Either GNustep or window manager can handle window drawing.
 But if window manager draw the window,
 GNUstep x11 backend has to talk to different window manager differently
 in order to make it work on various window manager.
 And the result is that none of them are perfectly.
 Therefore you got a not perfect window manager
 and a complicated backend for these window managers.

 Anyway, window drawing is not a big problem right now.
 It only matters in look-and-feel.
