This patch add a new and optional at compilation (via
--enable-fake-root ) -fr option and associated fakeRoot
resource.

When turned on, it makes three small adjustments to
aterm behavior:

- parent window is made override_redirect, and thus
stays unmanaged by the X window manager. This window is
mapped
at the bottom of the stack.

- terminal window cursor is left untouched as
XC_left_ptr instead of XC_xterm.

- EnterNotify and LeaveNotify events are catched in the
X events loop, used to ajust the focus in or focus out
behavior to this knew situation.

This lead to a very cute eye-candy: pseudo-terminal
that seems to be integrated right into the X desktop,
like an interactive tail-root! Try: "aterm +sb -tr -fr"

Patch against sourceforge CVS on January 21st 2005
(approximatively aterm-1.00.beta2a) included.
