In the meantime it is quite easy to workaround the issue.  For
example if you use, say, bash then you can add such shell function
to your shell startup files:

xrandr () {
   \xrandr $@
   /sbin/pidof sawfish >/dev/null 2>&1 && sawfish-client -f restart

and something similar with other shells.  A shell function will
be executed earlier then an external with the same name.  Or add
a "wrapper" script somewhere early in your path.
