I happened to look at the xboard-bug mailing list (I'm not a subscriber) and saw that there was a small thread about this in which someone noted that is was strange that I had a maximise button. I'm using XFCE 4.10 (with the default WM), if that helps.

Btw, I don't like windows that disallow resizing and/or maximising. Especially with a chess program, I think it should be possible to maximise it so as to hide all other desktop distractions while concentrating on the game.

I experienced a graphics bug while using XBoard. I don't know how to explain it other than to attach a screenshot of the problem. The strange graphical artifacts on the right hand side of the board arose as I was dragging a chess piece around using the mouse.

I'm using the latest Debian Sid, and XBoard has Debian version number 4.7.2-1.

Here is some info about the installed packages on which XBoard depends/recommends/suggests in the Debian packaging system, generated by the Debian reportbug:
