I'm seeing a weird problem when using gtk themes that use pixmaps with
sawfish. For example, using sawfish with the gtk theme "Adept-Premier"
(The "Pixmap" theme also does this) try and open the sawfish root menu;
it'll draw the background pixmap, but the text will not appear, and
the X session will freeze for a minute or two.


Any ideas?

I've tried recompiling imlib with imagemagick installed (wasn't before)
and that didn't seem to help...
