[wmii] setting the border doesn't work

Hello everyone, today I switched from Ratpoison, mainly because I missed
a presistent statusbar feature like in GNU screen. A long time ago I was
a Ion used, but switched to ratpoison because Ion was getting too

But anyway, I am playing with it since a few hours, did read some docs,
works more or less fine. I use version in today's Debian sid:

Here is my first problem: setting the border doesn't work.

Here is what I have in the relevant part of ~/.wmii-3.5/wmiirc

# WM Configuration
wmiir write /ctl << EOF
grabmod $MODKEY
border 0

And it seems to set the variable:

miernik_AT_tarnica:~$ wmiir read /ctl
view 1
focuscolors #ffffff #153F1F #2A7F3F
normcolors #222222 #5FBF77 #2A7F3F
font -*-fixed-medium-r-*-*-13-120-75-75-c-60-*-*
grabmod Mod1
border 0

But no matter to what number I set it, 0, 1, 3 or 10, there is no visual
difference, I always have a 1 pixel green border, which I would like to
get rid of, because I hate borders, or anything which wastes my screen
real estate for useless distracting decorations.

So, what do I should do to get rid of the border?

Question two: what are called the funny 3 pixel corner decorations in
the upper left and upper right corners of the window, and how do I get
rid of them? On this screenshot there are not there:
however on my system they are.

Question three: how do I disable focus-follows-mouse?

The guide
seems outdated, things are named differently in my installation, where I
can find the docs for my version? There aren't too many docs in the
Debian package, even the wmii-doc package contains only an outdated PDF
version of the above page.
