xroach game for X11: displays disgusting cockroaches on your root
window. These creepy crawlies scamper around until they find a window to
hide under. Whenever you move or iconify a window, the exposed beetles again
scamper for cover.
Cleaned up for modern C compilers. Please be aware that this version still has some bugs and glitches.
