   I tried this, but unfortunately it didn't seem to help. I did ktruss
firefox, and it appeared to stop just after loading some so-file. I
can't remember which right now, but it wasn't libgconf-2.

   Everything works with xfce4. I tried it for a while. Now I'm running
fluxbox and I'm quite happy with it. It would appear to be some
WindowMaker problem. Quite unfortunate, I really liked WindowMaker. But
I'm quickly growing fond of fluxbox, so I may simply stick with it instead.

Kind regards,
Jan Danielsson
