[Oroborus-user] Eclipse subwindows: window width zero?

Just I finished subscription to this list, may I ask hereby for help.
I have problems with Eclipse (sub)windows using Oroborus, sometimes some
windows have zero width, maybe sometimes some subwindows don't appear at
all (I came to this idea as sometimes Eclipse kind of freezes or something).
In comparison, if using twm, none of these problems has occurred.

I have no idea if this is oroborus problem at all, or maybe goes back to
some java GUI technology running behind Eclipse.  Can anyone using
eclipse and oroborus confirm this behaviour?  :-)

(I am running Gentoo-Linux on Intel T7400 hardware.)

Secondly, a minor problem touches deskmenu.  I could not figure out how
to have a menu entry in ${HOME}/.deskmenurc like

    menuitem=XTerminal:xterm -bg '#aaaaaa'

because # seemingly is parsed as a comment symbol and starting xterm
fails at this point.  A quick workaround which is no elegant solution
could be something like

--- deskmenu-1.4.2/src/popup.c.orig     2005-09-07 14:17:55.696409792 +0200
+++ deskmenu-1.4.2/src/popup.c  2005-09-07 14:17:29.858337776 +0200

                        char *comment;
                        /* to make sure comments are ignored */
                        comment = strchr (buf, '#');
-                       if (comment)
+                       if (comment == buf)
                                        comment[0] = '\n';
                                        comment[1] = '\0';

which has the effect of accepting only lines with starting '#'
as the comment lines.
