Re: [wmx] Wmx Bug

my guess is this: (i haven't looked at that part of the code)

when a window disappears, replace it's entry in the list with the
word "<defunct>", and link it to no window.  that way, the menu
doesn't change while it's up.  then when it disappears, update any
structures, and delete that entry from the list or whatever needs
to be done.

seems like the easiest solution to me...


"You must bring me...                    /          Scott "Jerry" Lawrence
                 ...A SHRUBBERY!"       /              jerry@absynth.com
                                   \___/                www.absynth.com
