Apprarantly, bash doesn't realize that it's not supposed to
behave as a POSIX shell when it's not invoked as one, at least
not completely. It's GNU, so what can you expect? Anyway, see
the other reply.

I'll fix this by the next snapshot. It's a tricky problem. At
first, I only applied the hack to the first window that the app
mapped, but xmessage turned out to map an invisible window
first, so that didn't work. I was considering applying a
timeout, but I haven't decided exactly how yet.
