I start the GUI with the Control Desk separated from the topology window 
and the events start inside the Control Desk.  Changing the .outside in 
the app-defaults to TRUE from the default of FALSE makes this happen 
automatically at startup.  
As matter of startup, after starting netview from the command line, just 
after the main windows displays, I change to the second desktop session.  
Then when the control desk starts, it starts in the second window space.  
I then change back to the first desktop session and netview is there 
with the tree and tools minimized and the topology window is full
