The current system for setting the grab window is actually really good -- the default can be specified
in .Xdefaults, the selection icon lets you draw a rectangle, or simply click the window. So my request is low priority.

Still, it would be nice to be able to manually resize the capture window by pulling on the red lines.

    If nobody objects, I'd rather not backport this to the Xt
    GUI after
    having put it into the Gtk GUI.

    This is going to be more complicated than expected if
    the selection frame is supposed to stay always on top
    of other windows (as I feel it'd best)
    More research required.

    Keep us posted! It would be really useful, for instance when
    capturing applications that have more than one windows.

    I agree that ideally (and eventually), the capture frame
    should stay on top, but I wouldn't mind if the resizing put
    the frame at some point behind other windows -- that's a
    minor drawback. If you're manually resizing the frame, the
    parts you don't move presumably stay where they were.

    Cheers,
    David
