RE: drag 'n drop from external applications?

Weird ... I thought I had replied to this ...

I am pretty sure I know why it is not working, the DND events are probably being discarded (although they are definitely fired). If you create a window with a entry field you will see that you can drag anything to it, and then you could have a timer that checks if it's value has changed (I'll post an example in a second).

As far as trapping the DND_* (and other system events), I have implemented the event handler callback, which allows you to create a callback that responds to all events not being trapped elsewhere (including system/X events). I haven't had a chance to test this with DND events yet, but it'll should allow you to write more sensible code for these cases.

I'll push it out with the next build (hopefully this weekend).
