Your desktop may be unusable without a window manager, so it is best
to do this in one line.  The sleep is there to ensure that Sawfish has
time to quit properly.

Thank you Timo! That makes things a bit more workable :)

I still maintain that it would be nicer if the errors actually came back to sawfish-client. Currently I pulled together a quick hack in vim that does the emacs thing for C-x C-e by just passings things to sawfish-client -e. If anyone is interested, I can share.

(I'll upgrade as soon as I figure out how to make debian packages
for librep),

Will do!

Thanks again,
