So what you're saying is that anyone who wants to have a restart
command should alias "kill -1 `pidof wmx`", or something of the like. I
can live with that. I'd still prefer to see a "Restart wmx" menu item
in addition to just sending SIGHUP to wmx, but I can live with that.

P.S. I think "killall -1 wmx" would do the same thing, as "kill -1
`pidof wmx`", and it might work slightly better too. I know that on my
system (RH 6.0), "pidof" is in /sbin, which is in root's PATH, but not
any user's PATH.
