(Is that right?) So I will just try altering my config file and see if that works. (I will start with just a few commands that should be harmless.) But I was surprised that the sample fvwm2rc file also behaved in a way similar to my own config file, i.e., it did not work. Maybe I should try all three sample config files.
Oh well. I will post anything I find that might possibly be useful. If something related to gnome just appeared on the scene (an update) that caused FVWM to misbehave it would be good to know about it. And actually I'm glad you DID mention ConfigFvwmDefaults, since knowing of its existence helps the understanding of how FVWM works. Thanks, -- Peter
