yes, i have kind of the same problem. sometimes, if an application only
shows a window for a very short time, other windows disappear
mysteriously even though the process is still running and the window is
still listed in "xwininfo -root -tree". restarting sawfish doesn't help.
over here, this happens mostly with applications like easytag, that pop
up a progress window when scanning a directory or something similar.
i've reported this problem 2 or 3 times to the list, but nobody seems to
sawfish 1.0.1 is the last version that doesn't have this problem.
