I can't make head or tail of what you're talking about. Last I heard
you were using X over Mac OS X, so it doesn't make sense that XEmacs
would be talking directly to the OS; DND is a desktop function so it
should be mediated by the GUI server, namely X. I'm sure there are
other ways to do it, but if you're going to try to make an end run
around X, you're going to have to be a lot more clear about what
you're doing before I can help. Maybe there are others who know more,
but since they haven't responded yet....
