Mounted my MFM emulator in the with a little window so I can see the blinkies

On my desktop I added a workspace switcher to the panel, which resulted in all window manager controls no longer working (maximize, minimize, close, moving, etc.). Removed the workspace switch, but the problem persists. sucks.

Minor LR-87 client updates to add timeouts to read operations from servers. It's been driving me a little nuts...

Feel free to boost, dm, and share links.
