I didn't manage to rebuild it unstripped with some mk.conf settings but I
just did a make in /usr/pkgsrc/wm/windowmaker an copied the unstripped
binary to the right position.

Now I get the following in gdb:

(gdb) bt
#0  0x482d4f97 in kill ()
#1  0x482d4171 in abort ()
#2  0x48297d9e in __assert ()
#3  0x8094773 in WMGetFromPLDictionary ()
#4  0x807c01d in wScreenRestoreState ()
#5  0x807ed4e in StartUp ()
#6  0x806c830 in main ()
#7  0x804d2d5 in ___start ()

Is it possible to say what caused the problem? Should I contact the
WindowMaker guys?
