Some good news and some bad news to report. I've been able to
reliably reproduce the double-spawning of xterms I've been seeing.
The bad news is that it still happens even with a fresh
0) Create a keyboard shortcut if one does not already exist (I'm
using <ctrl>+u set to spawn an xterm)
1) Open WindowMaker's preferences.
2) Click on "Applications Menu Definition" (it's the icon
immediately to the left of the keyboard icon)
3) Click save, and then close.
4) Keyboard shortcuts will spawn two applications.
I use keyboard shortcuts to spawn xterms, browsers, and filemanagers.
All of them spawn twice after performing the above. To fix it,
<F12> or <right-click> -> Exit -> Restart.
If I repeat steps 1-3, three windows will spawn. Repeat again and
four windows will spawn etc. (I stopped after getting five to
spawn at once).
Two other bugs that happened that I have not been able to
reproduce since running 0.95.2 are as follows.
I had WindowMaker start to use 100% CPU and become unresponsive.
I had to switch to a console and pkill wmaker. IIRC,
<CTRL>+<ALT>+<BKSP> did not function to quit X while this was
happening, hence the use of pkill on the console.
I also had a weird bug where videos in mplayer that normally
played fine, only played at about 5 FPS. Restarting WindowMaker
had no effect, but quitting WindowMaker and running startx again
did fix it.
I will continue to run with 0.95.2 to see if I can reproduce the
above two bugs or find any new ones.
