I already feared that. :/

ACK. Didn't try to do such a thing.

If you meant the "Boomarks -> Manage Bookmarks...", yes the problem also
applies to it.

Fact is, DND doesn't work in _any_ gtk-based application under wmii and when
running one without any WM (or any other... though thats not an
alternative ;), it works fine.

If you know any test that would give a more clear result (maybe telling that
it's definitely not a wmii problem), let me know.
