"I read on taekwindow's Homepage that there is an internal blacklist for programs that use alt-Mouse-actions on their own. Could you please add VNC-Viewers to this list?
While I like taekwindow under Windows, I do not want to lose the functionality when working remote under linux. ;-)
I do not know how you identify blacklisted windows, the VNC-Viewer we I use is from http://www.realvnc.com/ Is is possible to identify the VNC-Viewer, independent from its Version number?"
I could probably implement this any way I want, but the tricky part is to determine which behaviour makes most sense. For example, if someone uses VNC to control a Windows box, the viewer should not be blacklisted. Also the VNC behaviour should be consistent with the behaviour of Remote Desktop, which currently does not get a special treatment either.
I have been thinking about building a user-configurable blacklist. This would solve this problem for most users.

Also, maybe it would be a better idea to make this a seperate option, just like the 'disable on window title'. Photoshop (CS3) for example, also needs the alt+click.
