ressources. But because I'm not a gnome/gtk programmer I couldn't get
"kill" buttons into the tooltip.
If you are interested I can post the patched version of this applet. But
this applet still has one problem: It fails to run/compile on Jaunty
because of depencies to old libs. But if you use Intrepid you will have
