Subject: Reshaping BT! menu shouldn''t cause whole group of attached windows to reshape

Subject': new mode for BREAKwindow'
To':   Burton'
cc':   LispSupport'
Looking over the ATTACHEDWINDOW documentation, it appears as though the'
following problem is merely the failure to reset the defaults for generation'
of BREAK windows (with their subwindows for BT and the frame information).'
Doing a BT! often winds up with a lot of information "dropped off the bottom"'
of teh BT window; true, one could scroll it, but I prefer to reshae it manually.'
However, the new default for reshaping causes a re-shape attempt for this'
window to re-shape the whole group;  that is not good, since I don''t'
want the main break window to grow in height merely because the (rather'
narrow) BT window has to grow in height.'
