x11-wm GNUstep-compliant NeXTstep window manager clone
Patch to fix a debilitating problem for amd64 users. To quote Scott:
"While it compiles and seems to start fine, it will crash if you
start any GTK-based program, including Firefox and Mozilla ...
GTK populates the NET_WM_ICON X11 property with incorrectly padded
data, and WindowMaker blindly reads it out and winds up passing
garbage to some X libraries, which in turn abort the entire process ...
Fortunately, handling this X11 property is not mandatory as there are
other more reliable ways to pass icon state through X (and in fact very
very few other window managers even try this), so it's safe to avoid the
whole mess by stubbing it out and letting Windowmaker fall back to a
more reliable method."
I've tested this patch with i386 windowmaker, and haven't noticed any
differences. I have xterms and various other things doing fancy stuff
with window and icon titles, so I'm pretty confident that this will
be safe for users of all ARCH's. It's also possible that it will help
those users who were having weird QT problems, but I was not able to
reproduce that problem so I can't say for sure.
