when I use 'gm import' to take a screenshot, it beeps when it starts and stops, how can I disable this?
Also, it freezes my X display, how can I disable this? None of the other screenshot programs I've used
freeze my X display.

The only way I know would be to modify the source code.

I believe that the reason it freezes your display is so that the image
is not changing (or become unavailable) while the screen is being
captured. Normally the screen freeze is only for a second or two,
however I notice that the drag-and-crop mechanism seems to cause the
screen capture to take a *long* time (e.g. 24 seconds.
The 'xv' program also beeps and freezes the display while it does
screen captures. What X11 screen capture program do you use that
doesn't freeze the display?
