I'm not sure this is a good idea; one of wmii-3's new features
(compared to wmii-2.5.2) is that it provides a 9P service. I'm not an
expert on 9P, but the behavior Kris mentiones sounds like a bug, and
hence I think it is better to fix it before the release... ("new in
wmii-3: partial 9P service" doesn't sound too great :-)

Greetings, Sander.

PS. like I said, I'm not an expert on 9P; if the misbehavior is caused
by an expectation of functionality that is not part of the 9P
specification, I'd say delay the fix till after wmii-3 (for wmii-3.1
for instance).
