With both fvwm 2.6.5 and latest 2.6.7 I experience a bug when icon of the window of some apps keeps a previously set title. For example: - Normal window has title AND icon title "title", which is correct according to FvwmIdent, - After Iconify, icon title appears as some default name of the application, or "title". - Deiconifying it again, and making app change title to "title (new)". Both title and icon title are correct and shown as "title (new)" according to FvwmIdent. - Iconifying it again, and icon is named "title" (if there was some default app name, it changes to this previously set name). - Deiconifying it again, and making app change title to "new title". Again, both title and icon title is correct per FvwmIdent.
- Iconifying it again, and I see icon name set to "title (new)".

This issue happens only with some apps. Namely, I think all FOX toolkit apps are affected (for me they are Xfe, Xfw, Adie).

On forums http://fvwmforums.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3204 I was directed to mailing list thread
which gave me an idea that setting IconTitleFormat to %i and TitleFormat to %n separately may work. Indeed this worked and solved my issue I described.

So, if someone is affected too by strangely behaving titles of _some_ apps, here is a patch.
