Hmm.. I dont remember. If it worked fine with GNOME 2.2 (RHL9 was 2.2
wasn't it?), then it must have been GNOME 2.4 which changed things.  
Certainly, with GNOME 2.4, the gnome-panel desktop switcher and
window list no longer function with WindowMaker as WM. Indeed,
probably most other WMs other than metacity and sawfish.

I dont follow GNOME development, and i'm sure there must be good 
reasons for changing things, but from a user POV, the lack of 
backwards compatibility for something as basic as this is a wee bit 
annoying.

Ah, oops, yes:

	http://hibernia.jakma.org/~paul/rpms/RPMS/i386/WindowMaker-0.81.0-1.i386.rpm

It's a slow link btw. Also, I believe current WindowMaker CVS has the 
needed changes now.
