Ouch, I experience the same problem using presentation mode with KDE 3.0 and
icewm 1.09 . I have not yet tried with other window managers.  With
KDE 3.0, TeXmacs process is well alive but it disappears from the
sight of the window manager: the appli window becomes invisible, its
icon on the panel and the kasbar disappear. Same thing with icecwm except that
it has no kasbar.

The same problem with two independant WMs is a serious sign of broken
compliance with protocols.  BTW: Joris, what WM do you use?  Probably
some serious reading of the infamous ICCCM will help.

BTW: presentation mode seems to work fine when I don't use any window
manager. I would not dare to speak of work-around. :)

At least, I will try to make it visible...

It will be the occasion to get back to see TeXmacs and its
code per se.

If you are curious about my silence, I am knee-deep trying to bind Gtk 2.0
to TeXmacs and drive the GUI from Perl. I have nothing to show yet.

Also I would like to have some level of compliance of the TBD TeXmacs
widget with the Gtk 2.0 Text API as an incitation for people to use
the TeXmacs widget. This API is at last (and probably at least) as
powerful than the Tk text API I like very much and has been around for
many many years.

BTW: the online documentation is unisable without navigation help
either from the browsed document or texmacs as a browser.
