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 11:14:28 EST
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.

Thanks for the response, glad it was fixed.
