You seem to have not read the other thread involving this bug; that
patch was created on top of the Git HEAD:

    commit 8ee135bb6a8997d5e552f235c7c47ff85b741bcb
    Author: Eric Pruitt <>
    Date: Sun Apr 12 11:41:42 2015 -0700

        Add flag to automatically print unambiguous query

        - The "-a" flag has been added which causes dmenu to immediately print
          and exit if only one entry matches the current query.

    commit 13a529ce63364544bdc851dfd5d3aa2ef8740914
    Author: Anselm R Garbe <>
    Date: Wed Sep 17 13:40:11 2014 +0200

        applied Hiltjo's patch as suggested on the ml to fix ControlMask for C-j and C-m

If you look at the other thread was also not able
to reproduce the problem I encountered, but Markus Teich was per, so I am not the only
person the bug affects. If the patch doesn't break any functionality for
you, then I don't think there's any harm in applying the patch.
