Focus bugs can kill a man. (Or at least a program.)

A lot has happened on the Compass front these last two days. Maximized windows are now handled correctly. Compass now runs correctly on Win98 (and by association, hopefully ME as well). I also modified the way windows are shown to construct a new, meaningful, z- order list. This led to many beautiful and stunning bugs relating to the way windows interprets HWND_TOPMOST windows in the zorder.

All fixed now.

*I hope.*

I started putzing around with snap-to windows. Looks like it'll be fairly straightforward, but I might pass this feature up for now in favor of Hotkey support or mouse- moving.

Being sick sucks.
