    Interesting.  I can confirm that this works for me too, although
since I'm emulating B3 with a two-button mouse that obviously doesn't
work ... also, the window behavior is extremely erratic (no decorations,
window doesn't always come to front when it should, doesn't disappear
immediately when closed, etc.)
    Since my machine tends to lock up on suspend when the fancy graphics
are on, I'll probably continue without them for the time being ...
(I suppose I could write a script to toggle the graphics mode on
suspend/wake, but ugh)
