Well, maybe, but when I tried this I ran into a problem on Windows  
where the backdrop turned into an independent process and had to be  
closed with ctrl-alt-delete. I may have been doing something wrong,  
but rather than investigate it I went back to my homegrown backdrop  
which fills all the screen apart from the toolbar/dock area (that's  
what I've been asked to do, not cover the whole screen kiosk-style)  
and always pushes my other stacks to the front every time it gets a  
chance... I will look at backdrop some more.

Thanks for replying
