Unfortunately not with Xorg 1.6.1 -- these options went away  with
people whinging  about such things (even though I don't run Ubuntu,
it's still interesting). Plus, I didn't ever have these settings
enabled in my xorg.conf file -- so unless one or both of these were
enabled on my behalf, we'll never know. It's likely that used to be
the case though if one other person has been experiencing this -- the
similarity is too great to ignore -- especially as this is across
different distros (Gentoo versus Debian in this case.)

Alas, there isn't one, despite my best efforts, this is a real problem
for rxvt-unicode -- since I can well envisage more and more people
"complaining" about this here, when frankly it is looking like an Xorg
bug more and more. For now, I will have to do away with the popup menu
for rxvt-unicode and rely on setting everything via Xdefaults
beforehand. At least until this problem resolves itself.
I will keep this list informed of any Xorg progress I hear of -- if
that's where the problem lies and the folks at Xorg resurrect the
ActiveGrab stuff, or whatever replaces it.
