Oh, I was expecting something more along
the lines of "SDL is abomination and pile
of putrid garbage anyway"..

Basically I was thinking[1] that SDL assumes
wm is re-parenting, which means that both cwm
and dwm have problems when SDL using application
window is spawned e.g. black window, no

Why it works with mcwm, I don't know[2].


[2] If I reckon correctly, earlier dwm (5.7.2)
+ earlier SDL didn't have such problems, however
there is nothing in SDL's changelog which would
explain present behaviour.

P.S. As in BUGS, I have bugged them on their
forum + sent email, no reply.
