Fluxbox keymaps

I've just installed Fluxbox, and I already really like it. The problem is I have an application that uses the ALT key in combination with mouse buttons to navigate. Right now when I do ALT leftClick it moves the window, and ALT rightClick resizes. I can't figure out how to disable these actions so I can use my application.

I checked my ~.fluxbox/keys configuration and it has nothing set for these actions. Whats the deal?

im not sure, but I think these keys are set somewhere in X... maybe Im telling you bullshit now, but, I thougt these keys (alt+mouse) also worked under other window managers (such as blackbox, kde, and golem)

hope this helped...

Yes ALT + mouse does perform functions in other desktops, but they aren't the same and they are easily changed or disabled. I've used this app with both gnome and kde without problems. My problem still lies with Fluxbox
