RP: JWM problem?

I upgraded JWM from 574 to 579, see earlier blog post. Since then, there has been some peculiar behaviour, and I am now reverting to 574.

I have made a bug report to Joe, the JWM developer:

I have recompiled 'pngoverlay' in sap6, as 01micko reported a bug. I think that previously I had compiled it in Gentoo on RP. This will be in the next Woof commit.

From Uncle mick
" I will attempt to integrate techno's jwm_tools. (again). I have a better idea on how to do it. Fixmenus is terribly slow, even on a fast box.



One day (down the track) I am going to dump rox too. Spacefm is the front runner for a replacement. It can do pretty much what rox does and more.

I'm sure plenty would want me to retire JWM too, but no. Not happening. Maybe some improved lxpanel/openbox pets... there has been plenty of recent development with that and mate going on around the forum."

i quite like jwm, but

the down side with JWM is that mouse bindings can't be configured, making it incompatible with Inkscape.
