I believe that mitch made the splash screen "unmanaged" or something
like that - so it wasn't even under the control of the wm. Thus, not
only would it have no decor (or border!) but it would be on _every_
page of your virtual screen and could not be moved/hidden.

That's my guess.

I have set up fvwm2 to have a huge 16-pixel border (with no handles)
for my gimp splash screen window. Looks really funky.
