I agree with you, but it's not my forum to shut down. :) I don't have
the bandwidth to monitor the Internet for all of these little
discussion pockets. This mailing list has always been (and continues
to be) the place for FXRuby chatter.

Thanks. ;)

Per the message found by Joey Kinsella (elsewhere in this thread) it
sounds like the documentation for FXTopWindow needs to be corrected to
reflect the fact that you only get SEL_MINIMIZE, SEL_MAXIMIZE,
SEL_RESTORE and SEL_CLOSE when you call one of those FXTopWindow
methods (e.g. FXTopWindow#maximize); otherwise you just get
SEL_CONFIGURE. I'm not sure why the documentation wasn't corrected
when that problem was originally reported.

Leslie, could you please file a bug report on this on the new bug
tracker at Lighthouse?
