For some reason, I still can't get this to work using the variable $BAR_HEIGHT. Even when I open a new page, the bar gets covered as soon as I open any windows. I'm using a tiled layout, if that makes any difference.

However, if I hard-code in my preferred BAR_HEIGHT (i.e., 16), it works fine.

It would be cleaner if I could enter the variable somehow. I tried both of the strings that Anselm recommended, but for some reason the value for $BAR_HEIGHT isn't being passed along.

Any ideas? BTW, I have upgraded to wmii-2.5.1, which is very nice indeed.
