Hello list,

   For years I've been a fvwm user and I have a filemanager called Rodent,
(http://xffm.org which evolved from  the filemanager for xfce versions 4.0
and 4.2). Currently I'm working on a new release and I've come up with a
problem which may be fvwm related.

   On desktops 1-4, everything is fine, but on desktops 5-6 (out of 6
possible), gtk goes haywire trying to determine where to place the popup
menu or the tooltip window. A negative value is returned for the window
height. Gtk is using XGetWindowProperty() to retrieve the information and
sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. So maybe there is a race
condition with fvwm...

  Furthermore, the problem is non-existant if I link the program with gtk2
instead of gtk3.

Any help on how to work around this problem will be greatly appreciated.
Fvwm compatibility with Rodent filemanager is paramount.

$fvwm --version

  I'm not sure whether this is the appropriate list to post this query or
the fvwm-workers should be used instead. If this is the case, please let me
know and I will redirect the post.
