I'm not sure I understand what you're asking. Do you want xconsole to
move, or do you want it to look different?
I don't run xdm, but using startx and afterstep wm, I can move xconsole
with the titlebar. Once with fvwm I couldn't move an app, even when I
right clicked and did a 'move'. I think it had to do with the
application properties, specifically the titlebar, but I'm not certain.

This works for me:
/usr/bin/fetchmail -v > /dev/console 2>&1
Sometimes my xconsole doesn't update the display unless it's focused,
or until I resize it, but usually it work ok--I don't use it very much,
