Hm. That'd be nice, but /view seems to have disappeared from wmii-4.
There are sel directories in /client/<#>/ and /tags/, but I don't see
a "class" file in any of the directories. (I'm not sure what the 9P
terminology for these nodes is).

That is to say, creating the client triggers the event to be generated.

Francis, you should try debugging your event queue first. Use:

        wmiir read /event

and just let it sit there. Open some windows and see what it outputs.
Did you mention which version of WMII you were using?
