Description of problem:
Choosing "first-fit" for window placement in the sawfish configuration tool
results in sawfish crashing to the desktop the next time it tries to place a
window. Upon restart, it continues to crash as soon as it tries to place a window.

This has also occurred very occasionally (once a day, so far) with the standard
"top-left" placement method, however the first-fit method *always* works. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Middle-click on the desktop and choose "customize", then "placement"
2. Choose "first-fit" and hit okay.
3. Spawn a new window by any means.

Actual Results:  Sawfish crashed back to the desktop and left me with the
following on my console:

rep: received fatal signal: Aborted

struct debug_buf common:

Backtrace in `fatal_signal_handler':

Lisp backtrace:
#4   random ...
#3   sp-prune-points ...
#2   sp-make-grid ...
#1   sp-do-placement ...
#0   place-window (#<window 1a00002>)

waiting for X server to shut down

Expected Results:  The new window should have been placed appropriately.

Additional info:

This is on a pristine install of Limbo. The machine is a 1ghz Thunderbird Athlon
with 512mb RAM, Abit KT7a-RAID motherboard, and a Western Digital WD120JB hard

Thanks. Here's the screendump from the occasional "top-left" mode crash:
