3 questions regarding this defect report:
	[1] What window-manager are you running?
	[2] Are you running gnome-terminal or xterm?
	[3] Are the windows being iconified, or actually being killed?

1. I am running gnome.
2. They are gnome-terminals.  
3. All gnome-terminals are iconified with one click on "-".

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2000-07-22 16:37:19 EDT
It's a sawfish configuration issue.

Go into sawfish-ui, under

There should be a section that says:

'Iconfiying a window also iconifies the <selection>'

If that selection is set  to 'group', that's what's
causing the behavior you see.

Assigning to sawfish, in case we want to change the default config.

Default config should be fixed in beta4.
