OOh, well, then my computer does magic. ;]

xwd worked here in 3.x and is working with 4.0.3. Can you define
"intense"? Tried with browsers with a anim playing and a OpenGL app to
test. Do you mean video playback windows?

IIRC, ImageMagick writes to what you put as name, so if you say
foo.jpg, it writes a jpeg, and if you do not specify, you get a miff.
And import, at least when I tried with 3.x, had a bug that raised
windows even if you do not wanted.
