You may be lucky and someone here will be able to help you *but* I
suggest that you try http://www.gnu.org/software/xboard/ There are two
mailing lists email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Personally,
I would ask on the email@example.com *AFTER* making sure I am doing
what the documentation says but not getting the results I expect.
I don't know what kind of reception you'll get asking a user support
question on a development list but there appears to be no user support
Describe the problem a bit more - what happens exactly and what did you
expect to happen.
I use xboard but don't use it in the way you describe above, so I can't
help you in this case.
