CVS lastest is event driven model

The beta tested version made extensive use of a cyclic timer to check for new windows, remove icon windows from the desktop after minimization, delete icons and keep the iconbar at the top of the stacking order. The lastest CVS entry has a customized Xevent loop that monitors (in true X fashion) the changes in the substructure of the root window. The result is greatly improved stability and an elimination of the iconbar always-on-top behavior fighting with full-window applications.
