yes I have a pager. But you could assign names to those "coordinates"
and call viewport 1,4 "email" or such. Those would be displayed in
similar manner as assigning name "email" to workspace number 3.

This crash actually isn't related to viewports. It happens when some
window is closed. And I guess it is closed in some illegal way, maybe
when unmapped from wm. Of course closing windows in illegal way is
illegal, but sawfish isn't supposed to crash at this. Thanks for your
interest in the issue.
