This is not a supported use of GTK+. You must create a helper
program instead. For further details, see:

Select the 3rd tick box of the first configuration screen that right clicking it (near the top) brings up...

Well that's window manager specific isn't it? Which one are you using (KDE, Gnome, OpenBox...)

Try using the -w option:
gkrellm -w
IIRC this runs it in the right side of the screen.

Cool

MasterC, the -w is to run it in the system tray/slit.
The second config screen mentions a compatable window manager may be needed, but I think the first has a nice trick of passing the dragging event to the window manager to be instantly repositioned where it was at closure/logout
