Re: xconsole mystery

Trying to use sawfish again, after some holiday abroad in openbox land

I start my X with xdm, and I run xconsole from Xsetup:

# $Id$
# This script is run as root before showing login widget.

#xsetroot -solid rgb:8/8/8
hsetroot -tile /usr/local/share/sky-1280x1024.jpg
xconsole -geometry +0-0 -notify -verbose -exitOnFail &

The xconsole instance persists into my session.  I had this setup with
openbox and it works flawlessly.  It almost works with sawfish too,
_except_ that the xconsole window gets iconified.  I have no idea why
the behavior is different from openbox, but I see this:

itz matica:~$ xprop -name xconsole   
                window state: Normal
                icon window: 0x0
WM_CLIENT_LEADER(WINDOW): window id # 0xa00011
WM_CLASS(STRING) = "xconsole", "XConsole"
                Client accepts input or input focus: True
                Initial state is Iconic State.
                user specified location: 0, 952
                program specified size: 400 by 70
                window gravity: SouthWest
WM_COMMAND(STRING) = { "xconsole", "-geometry", "+0-0", "-notify", "-verbose", "-exitOnFail" }
WM_ICON_NAME(STRING) = "xconsole"
WM_NAME(STRING) = "xconsole"

Note the value of WM_HINTS.  I don't know how it gets so - I checked
xconsole source and it doesn't seem to do anything special about
WM_HINTS.  But it is that way even with openbox, so this is not really
sawfish's fault I guess, it does what it is told to do.

2 more data points:

when I start another client, such as xloadimage, from Xsetup, it doesn't
behave like this - it's decorated normally.

I tried to put this in .sawfishrc, it doesn't change anything:
(map-windows uniconify-window)

Have you tried a window-matcher for xconsole to try to setup the wanted behaviour?
And which version of sawfish are you using? If not you can try updating.
