Re: [Sawfish] periodic segfault

Hi, Trevor Cordes.

Your Sawfish is run by some session manager, maybe one of Gnome or
KDE. I don't know anything about them, but if Sawfish is run as
sawfish &> ~/sawfish-log or so, it's better. (A dirty way is
to move /usr/bin/sawfish elsewhere, and replace it with a shell script
wrapper.) But improvements may be only merginal. Build librep, rep-gtk
and Sawfish with -g, and attach the debugger. (I don't know much about
debugger.) One good thing about the session manager is it starts the
window manager again after crashes; if X were killed, you'd lose all

On window shifting: if you can write lisp, there's the function
(window-frame-offset win) (read the info). With it, you can
automatically "unshift" windows.

Sorry for terse reply. I'm retired.
