Description of problem:
Sometimes when using sawfish, my root menu will stop working for no reason I've
been able to determine. I discovered (as a result of being impatient for things
to load) that I can achieve the same effect by middle-clicking while sawfish is
starting. The only way I've been able to make the root menu work again is by
logging out and starting a new session. (Can sawfish be restarted from within
sawfish-client? That might work, too.) This isn't terribly urgent, since it
would never cause data loss or anything like that---the apps keep working fine
after the root menu becomes unavailable---though it is really annoying when it
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to X.
2. Middle click while x apps are starting from .xsession.
3. Now, instead of bringing up the root menu on a middle click, sawfish will say
"*** Error: Menu already active" in your .xsesson-errors each time you try.
