For those who haven't read the bugzilla: it says that when an error
occurs in sawfish-client, then the error message is sent to sawfish
WM stderr, and not in the terminal from which sawfish-client is run.

If you do as:
$ sawfish-client -e "(no-such-func)"
then it prints:
*** Remote sawfish error: (void-value no-such-func)

The WM output remains untouched. 

There's one more thing you should know. 
$ sawfish-client -e '(format standard-error "hello\n")'
'hello' is sent to WM's stderr, because -e make the form evaluated
by WM. OK.

$ sawfish-client
user> (format standard-error "hello\n")
Here, 'hello' is put to *stdout* of the shell. Hm, it's ok that
standard-out goes to shell's stdout, but standard-error should go to
shell's stderr, no?

sawfish-client is difficult for me to understand, so I ask someone
on this case.
