I don't know Gnome, but you can run the configurator by middle-clicking
the root window = background. Or, you can run from the command line
"sawfish-config" or "sawfish-ui". (Recently we changed the name from
the latter to the former.)

Use the configurator I mentioned above. It can change *all*
frames. (It may be better to restart Sawfish after you change the
frame.) What you said opens the menu for *operations on that window*,
like maximization, toggling stickiness, etc.
