Thanks! I didn't know Alt-Enter was bound to full screen; does it work

yes... you've run into a bug that I fixed a few days ago (since you
commented that it's doing nothing).  Misled by the manpage, I used
32-bit data for reading the list of supported features.

When I added the feature, it wasn't (as) clear to me that people actually
used alt-enter.  So now I know, and am making the feature configurable
(which in turn leads to new functionality, etc).

Do you mean _NET_WM_STATE_FULLSCREEN in _NET_SUPPORTED array? Awesome3
does advertise this feature. But neither Alt-Enter nor Full Screen
option set the atom.

hmm - xterm is only asking if the atom is set. The bug-fix I mentioned is that it may not find the atom on 64-bit machines. (I have my ongoing fixes in ftp://invisible-island.net/temp - this one simply changed CARD32 to long).

I installed awesome on my Debian/testing, and it does seem to honor the fullscreen feature. (The screensize is not right, since the bottom row of text is incomplete due to the increment size, etc - something I'll have to continue working on).

At the moment, I'm just considering configurability to allow the fullscreen feature to be entirely disabled (along with the key translation), though just disabling the key itself may be preferable.

under tiling window manager? ;-)

I did suppose it would work better in ion2/ion3 than the ordinary layout,
which uses character-sized increments for the window manager hints.

But I've been busy setting up new machines for testing ports, and didn't
follow up on checking that.  Given your question, I've added ion2/ion3
to my "Lenny" machine.  Any other suggestions for testing?

Too many window manager out there. I would suggest “awesome” which I use. ;-)

yes - too many.  I'd been using fvwm for quite a while, but in my newer
environment I'm mainly using Mac OS X with Parallels or some type of
VNC display.
