Description danf 1999-05-08 15:23:59 EDT
If the Read or PipeRead commands are found in
/etc/X11/fvwm2/system.fvwm2rc, processing of the file
appears to stop with an error after executing the command.
Even the simplest case, 'Read /tmp/one_line_file' after
running echo '' > /tmp/one_line_file causes the problem.
These commands work fine with fvwm2 2.0.46 running under Red
Hat 4.2.

Assigned to pbrownDoes this work in Red Hat 6.0? Please reopen if still a problem.
