Excellent - that is exactly what I wanted.
Unfortunately I've since discovered that nautilus and sawfish don't play
well together if nautilus draws the desktop. I think this is probably a
sawfish issue, but I'll describe the problem here in case anyone has a
I have the insert key set to bring up a terminal window if it is pressed
in the root window. If nautilus doesn't draw the desktop, I press it
once and I get one terminal. If nautilus does draw the desktop and I
press it once, I either get none or three terminals. This happens
consistently. It happens with the sawfish that is standard with rh9 and
with the latest one (1.3) from sourceforge.
