That would be fine. Except that as far as I know, the windowmaker I

I still can't get the wretched message to appear or to not appear
reliably, though. I have a slightly more up-to-date windowmaker which
I want to try, and despite upgrading Gnome to what came on the RH 6.1
release (1.0.40 ish?), I seem to be out of date again already on that
front. I should probably grab the later stuff, I know :)
