KDE on Cygwin - rootless mode

I recently got KDE going on Cygwin in the new X11 rootless mode
(installed last Thursday through Cygwin setup) and had a couple of
- It appears that Konquerer (or is it KDesktop?) in KDE 2 and later
opens a full-screen window, thus defeating rootless mode altogether.
KFM doesn't do this but instead draws its icons directly on the X root
window or maybe uses 1 small window per icon. In any case, KFM and KDE
1.x works really nicely in Cygwin in rootless mode, including drawing
icons nicely on the X root window, but I haven't been able to duplicate
this behavior in KDE 2.x. Does anyone know how to do this?
- Periodically kioslave gets stuck in a loop whilest eating 100% cpu.
This appears to randomly happen when I launch an application from
either KPanel or KFM. I'm able to restore functionality by killing it
from Windows task manager. Does anyone know why this happens and/or how
to prevent it from happening? (I'm willing to look at / compile sources
Thanks in advance,
