Patch which seems to fix the problem

Description of problem:

fvwm sometimes crashes on clicking the "back" button of a browser (e.g. chrome or firefox)

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

fvwm-2.6.5-1.fc16.i686 (from Fedora updates)
fvwm-2.6.4 (built from source)

How reproducible:

Happens from time to time, so not all that reproducible, but if you surf a bit and use the back button a lot, it happens quite often.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start surfing (chrome or firefox, but probably other programs too)
2. Use the "back" button on the browser
Actual results:
Sometimes fvwm crashes.

Expected results:

fvwm should not crash!

fvwm-2.5.30 (Fedora rpm) does not have this problem, nor does 2.6.3
(built from source). It only appears in 2.6.4 (built from source) and 2.6.5 (Fedora updates). The problem seems to be a change in fvwm/events.c:3386 from:
                if (!WAS_ICON_NAME_PROVIDED(fw))
in 2.6.3 to:
                if (!WAS_ICON_NAME_PROVIDED(fw) || (fw->icon_name.name &&
                        (fw->icon_name.name != fw->name.name)))
in 2.6.4 and 2.6.5. Note that in 2.7.0 it has been reverted back to the 2.6.3 version without the OR, so I guess someone already noticed the problem.

Backing out this change (see attached patch) seems to fix the problem.

Sorry, the bug report I submitted didn't show up at first in bugzilla, so I resubmitted and now they both show up.
