Description of problem:
Cannot resize windows by dragging borders.  System beeps, but no error is
written to the screen.  After some poking around, also found that I cannot
open the "Appearance" capplet for Sawfish from the Nautilus browser.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
2.Attempt to resize Nautilus window by dragging border.

Actual Results:  System beeps, border does not drag, window does not
resize.  Attempted also with Mozilla, Galeon, and gnome-terminal.  Same
results.  Using the "Maximize" button works as expected, though.

Attempting to open Preferences -> Sawfish Window Manager -> Appearance
produces a blank capplet window with only the three buttons along the
bottom, not the expected appearance options.  The blank window will remain
indefinitely until killed.  Appearance options can be changed by running
the Sawfish configuration tool.

Once the appearance configuration is changed successfully, the window
resizing problem goes away (hence the "sometimes, but not always"

Additional info:

I can't believe something like this made it through QA.
