hey Kris, how are yuou doing man ? its has been a longer time since you
ohave helped me ;)

okay, I have 3 bug reports:

  1.) I am running stable version of wmii with dmenu 3.4:

   The only problem I have got is most of the times, wmii stops responding
to the keys. Mod-1, Mod-2 and Mod-Enter doe snot do anything at all.
The whole wmii just freezes. I have it on two machines: UBUNTU Dapper
( my friend's) and RHEL 4 (my machine) and both of them suffer the same
problem of wmii.

BTW, The only key it responds to is "kill X keys" i.e. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace
combination to kill X.

 2.) I don't think the issue is with wmii itself because when i install
dmenu 3.5 or 3.6 with wmii stable, it NEVER ever responds to Mod-p or
Mod-Enter at all. Switching to dmenu 3.4 solves the problem.

3.) wmii snap form here:

gives make errors:
