i have had no problems with the 1541-drivers at all under 2.4.17
it's jsut the thing with higher driver-versions....

what was the problem ?
a gem-window that is kind of "transparent" ?

i do not really see a reason for this:
when i develop things i can put the Gem-window wherever i like (which 
might be inconvenient, but not important)
for use in "public" i would run gem in fullscreen mode.
(i see a need for a "create_fullscreen" or something similar)

but i might be ignorant (and maybe i find time to implement it...)
