WM wackies with eterm

I downloaded the eterm slackware package for eterm and build it here.
it works but just can't move the window around. I searched for awhile and couldn't find any answer so I'm posting it here.

I install eterm and all it's dependencies, on my labtop but whenever I grab the title bar of eterm I can't move it around in fluxblox. But xterm and any other apps I can. Maybe I forgot something dunno....

Slackware 11 using the default kernel from the iso image for now ('bareacpi.i). any Ideas, suggestions? There is

There is no messages in /var/log/messages, dmesg or X11 log files mentioning any errors.

Try it with another wm like window maker and see if it still does it.

You might try my package and see if it gives different results:

It has to do with glass-theme for Eterm. because if I open Eterm without the glass theme I'm able to move it around. Stay haven't pinned down where in the ~/.Eterm/glass files that causing this yet.

This is very odd to me in order to move the window I have to hold the down Meta-key(ALT) while using the mouse to move the window. hopefully
I can find where in the theme file to remove this feature I don't like.
