     The ones that were in the default file (pidgin, vlc|mplayer, ROX)
work perfectly fine. It is only ones that I write in myself that don't
work. I tried using /tagrules, however, this shows up:

wmiir: fatal: Can't open file '/tagrules': file not found

witray: Replacing currently running system tray.
wmiir: fatal: Can't open file '/rbar/status': file not found

and trying to do the command manually reports the same error.
