Thanks a lot!

Actually I do not. I am still testing but I think this is fool proof now.

However I have one additional proposal: I would like to hide the title change
on mouse hover in kiosk mode. My project is about an exam taking system and I
would like to completely hide URLs from the user.
A patch is attached.

No problem. ;)
I renamed the file and added a note about sshd, pushed to git.
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Chris           get my mail address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*               gcc -o sig sig.c && ./sig    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
