Description of problem:
This bug is for Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation release 2.1AW (Derry) but I
can't seem to find that as an options so I'm reporting it as a 2.1AS bug. With
a fully patched system the upgrade of WindowMaker causes the title bar to get
messed up. It appears to be transparent and makes it impossible to read what
is on the title bar. This happens with mozilla and ANSYS but doesn't seem to
affect xterm. Downgrading to the versions on the install media fixes the
problem (but it has a security vunerability).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.upgrade to new version of windowmaker
2.fire up mozilla
3.try to read title bar
Actual Results: you see an unreadable titlebar
Expected Results: you should be able to read it
I bet the AS windowmaker patch was the old broken one I did, instead of the one
we ended up shipping for 6.2/7.x/8; if so I guess we'll need to update the
I removed my GNUstep folder and the problem went away. However when I went to
edit my configuration (I can't stand click to focus) with wmakerconf I get the

wmakerconf: rimage.c:461: rimage_2_preview: Assertion `image && image->width &&
After reading the errata description for WindowMaker that wmakerconf needs to
updated as well, maybe?
Those are the symptoms of the broken patch, it can't load any image over some
really small size.
Is an updated rpm going to be issued for this ????
We are updating the erratum packages attached to the RHSA-2003:009 advisory to
correct this issue. (Once these have passed QA and get pushed this bug will get
An errata has been issued which should help the problem described in this bug report.

This is fine and all, but as I reported in the first report, this was for
Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation release 2.1AW (Derry), which is NOT a
choice in bugzilla! WindowMaker-0.65.1-4.2.ia64.rpm seems to be only
available in RHN for 2.1AS. This needs to be setup on RHN for 2.1AW
It looks like when we did the update on this errata the packages for Advanced
Workstation 2.1 for Itanium were omitted. We'll work on fixing this, thanks for
