1. Hello all
2. Cool wm - the best I could find for low resolution X
3. the bug :(

with: wmx-5 and wmx-5sec4
using: Debian 2.1, Linux 2.2.6, X11R6.4, gcc, g++
       egcs-2.91.60 (ecgs-1.1.1 release), glibc6 2.0.7
compiling optns: I18N 0, CONFIG_USE_PIXMAPS False, removed -lXpm in Makefile
X11: XF86_Mono (Hercules 720x346)
     rxvt v2.4.5 (ln -s as xterm)
how to reproduce (with quotes from .xsession-errors):
     Assuming wmx is the default wm:
    - startx

     Focus follows pointer.  All clients on menu.  No session manager.
     Shape prodding off.  Plain borders.  Skeletal feedback on.  Channels on.
     Keyboard controls available.  Quick keyboard channel-surf available.
     Command menu taken from /home/psergiu/.wmx.  Keyboard menu available.
     (To reconfigure, simply edit and recompile.)
    - open a New window
    - press ^D to logout from the shell - and thus closing the window
    - try opening a New one: the menu is blank and:
wmx: X_PolyText8 (0x401df6c8): BadGC (invalid GC parameter)
    - however you can still open a New one but when it opens:
wmx: X_CopyGC (0x805f968): BadGC (invalid GC parameter)
    - try closing that window too with ^D:

Kabooey ! wmx has died ...

- wm2 works fine in the same setup
- with "X & ; export DISPLAY=:0 ; wmx" it works ok
