I haven't seen any other reports of this; did you ever track it down?
Otherwise I'll probably assume it's gone away in recent Sawfish versions.

Comment 4 Todd Nemanich 2002-02-26 16:14:28 UTC
I have not been able to replicate this later, so this can probably be closed.
This was fixed with the final release of 7.2.
