Anselm, I know you are not the wmii maintainer anymore, but since
you were the primary developer of wmii-3, I am sure you still have
great knowledge of its inner workings. Thus, could you please
review, revise, and apply this patch for wmii-3.2 (a
stability/bugfix release)?

- From the users point of view, no functionality is changed before and
after this patch, because wmiir behaves exactly the same. Reading
from /event is no problem even after the patch.

Thanks for your consideration.
