Re: Cross-talk between move and maximize bindings in 1.5.3

Hi. I can't reproduce the symptom reported by Derek Upham. See the
quotation at the bottom. I can't understand his theory, since I don't
know X.

By the way, I can't bind interactively to double-click. It's grabbed
as single-click, so I had to hand-edit ~/.sawfish/custom. (But the
double click works to execute a command.)
