This is the twm that comes with 5.2. These problems occured when I was not using a ~/.twmrc or ~/.xsession.

I found that there is some problem with xsm restarting twm within a session. I tried everything I could think of but twm always dumps core when its restarted by xsm. Twm only works correctly when a Fail Safe session is started by xsm. I figured out how to eliminate the session dialog after I logged in by adding "xsm -session Default" in my .xsession, but when twm dumps core, it leaves the session locked, and that prevents me from subsequently automatically logging into the Default session.

I ended up just running twm from my .xsession and not using xsm at all. It seems to work fine.

If anyone has a workaround for these problems, let me know.

Is this actually twm as installed from the base X packages?
Are you starting it from xdm(1) or startx(1)?
What does your .xsession or .xinitrc look like?
Does removing your personal .twmrc have any effect?
