I believe the problem is with SDL for that particularly. From talking over
the problem with some other people they suggest I can reparenting qemu's
window and unmap it if I had lower-level access to X.

I wasn't aware of kqemu, thanks for the pointer. What I'm working on was
originally intended to be familiar to someone who has used VMware. I've
gotten side-tracked recently into looking SDL and seeing how to more move
parameters from the command line into the monitor (like boot for example).

As well as using GTK2 via Perl, which I haven't done before, I'm trying
out Glade. If you are interested I've got an Arch repository at:
        archive: address@hidden/gtkqemu--devel--0 
        location: http://www.progsoc.org/~wildfire/arch/projects

I read in the archives that Fabrice wants an internal GUI, so it looks
like we have some competition. ;-)
