The first issue is not really Linux per se. It's a weird interaction
between R, X, and the window manager. Happens to me occasionally with
FC3, never did with RH8 on the same hardware. On FC3, you can
right-click the edge and select "move" from the menu, or press Alt-F7
to move windows around if you don't have a top border to grab. Someone
with enough time on his hands needs to look into this with a debugger.

The second issue: Yes, it is a SMOP ("simple matter of programming");
volunteers?  (I suspect that the hardest bit is figuring out how to
attach a menu to the raw-X11 plot window. The display list is there
already and we use it when resizing, etc.)
