Actually, the snapshot is more stable than 3.6, but...

I can't help you much with this, unless it still occurs in the
snapshot. You should open a terminal and `wmiir read /event' and
see if it still reports keys. Also, check /keys to see if
they're still grabbed. It's possible that you've bressed
something like M-C-t, which ungrabs most keys. Also, check if
clicking on titlebars and view names still works.

The interface changed. It needs new command line flags.

>3.) wmii snap form here:

I thought I'd fixed that. You just need to `make clean'. That
tarball has some FreeBSD object files in it.
