Dear fvwm [Jason I guess],

Today I installed version 2.4.17 and had one curious problem (that
did not exist in version 2.2 which I had been using for several years):
Namely, commands like
  *FvwmButtons(2x2+0+0, Icon zero.xpm, Action "Desk 0 0")
did not find the icon; I had to give the entire path name
  *FvwmButtons(2x2+0+0, Icon /home/icons/zero.xpm, Action "Desk 0 0")
even though I had said
  ImagePath /home/icons:/usr/share/icons
near the top of my .fvwm2rc file.

Other uses of icons, as in
  Style XTerm Icon royalshell.xpm, SloppyFocus, NoTitle
had no trouble finding /home/icons/royalshell.xpm.

If you want to see the entire .fvwm2rc file, including a screen shot,
you can find it on the web at
  http://www-cs-faculty.stanford.edu/~knuth/programs.html
near the bottom. Also given there are the icons zero.xpm, one.xpm,
two.xpm, and three.xpm that weren't found without full path names.

I've been a confirmed fan of fvwm ever since I started using this layout;
it increases my efficiency fantastically. Every other Linux window
system has bad ideas about the focussing --- every option of KDE
and GNOME is broken in some important way! Although the use of
full path names gets around my immediate problem, I thought you
would like to know about this apparent bug.

Cordially, Don Knuth
