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,
