|[Sawfish] periodic segfault|

Hi! I have used sawfish since Metacity (yuck) came out. Love it! Great
I have one little problem: every 1-3 weeks my wm crashes and restarts.
The only error I can see anywhere is on the console: "rep received fatal
signal segmentation fault"
Are there any other logs I can look in?
When it crashes, it restarts, but all my windows are shifted down and to
the right by the size of the titlebar/frame width. So I have to then
reposition all my windows to how I want them (some are off-screen a bit,
etc). Since I have about 200 windows open, this is a big pain.
It has crashed every couple of weeks on me for years, throughout many
versions of sawfish/librep/rep-gtk. I always try to get up to the latest
version hoping it is fixed, but it never is.
I'm eager to get this solved and am pretty good at using tracing /
debugging / logging tools and can find my way around C source.
A word about my environment, in case it's relevant: dual monitor 1600x1200
using xorg R&R. Fedora 16. Stock Fedora sawfish rpms now that it's back in
Fedora's stock repo. I never log out and I have 16 workspaces. Each
workspace will have 5-30 windows open in it. I probably have 200 windows
open on average.
The crash always seems to happen when opening a new window (though I can't
always be sure as it happens very fast). I see the window open and then
all the frames disappear and sawfish does its crash/restart cycle and
redraws all the frames. Usually it's on opening a firefox window, but I
open zillions of them all day long so it might just be the luck of the
