 Log Message:
 ctwm: update to 4.0.2
 From Rhialto (maintainer) in PR pkg/53584
 4.0.2 (2018-08-25)
 Backward-Incompatible Changes And Removed Features
 -   The UseThreeDIconBorders config var has been removed. It came in
     silently and undocumented in 3.4 and has never done anything.
 -   The attempts to use DNS lookups for setting the HOSTNAME m4 variable
     have been removed; it is now just a duplicate of CLIENTHOST.
 New Features
 -   The EWMH _NET_WM_NAME property is now supported, and used for the
     window name in place of the ICCCM WM_NAME when set. By default, we
     also accept UTF8_STRING encoded WM_NAME as a result of this change;
     see below for var to restore historical strictness.
 -   The EWMH _NET_WM_ICON_NAME property is now supported, and used for
     the icon name in place of the ICCCM WM_ICON_NAME when set. Similar
     comments as above apply to the encodings.
 -   Support has been added for CTWM_WM_NAME and CTWM_WM_ICON_NAME
     properties, which will override any window/icon names otherwise
     specified. This may be useful for applications that set unhelpful
     names themselves, or for manually adjusting labelling. These
     properties can be set from the command line via xprop; as an
     example, xprop -f CTWM_WM_NAME 8u -set CTWM_WM_NAME "awesome
     windowsauce". See xprop(1) manual for details; the s, t, and u field
     type specifiers will all work.
 -   When no icon name is set for a window, we've always used the window
     name for the icon name as well. But that only happened the first
     time the window name is set; after that, the icon name is stuck at
     the first name.  It now updates along with the window name, if no
     icon name is set.
 -   All icon manager windows will now have the TwmIconManager class set
     on them, so they can be addressed en mass by other config like
     NoTitle by that class name.
 New Config Options
 -   Added DontNameDecorations config option to disable setting names on
     the X windows we create for window decoration (added in 4.0.0).
     These have been reported to confuse xwit, and might do the same for
     other tools that don't expect to find them on non-end-app windows.
     Reported by Frank Steiner.
 -   Added StrictWinNameEncoding config option to enable historical
     behavior, where we're reject invalid property encoding for window
     naming properties (like a UTF8_STRING encoded WM_NAME).
 -   Fix up broken parsing of IconifyStyle "sweep". Bug was introduced in
 -   When multiple X Screens are used, building the temporary file for m4
     definitions could fail with an error from mkstemp(). Reported by
     Manfred Knick.
 -   When multiple X Screens are used, the OTP code didn't recognize the
     difference, and kept everything in one list. This caused the
     internal consistency checks to trip when it didn't find all the
     windows it expected. Reported by Terran Melconian.
 -   When ReverseCurrentWorkspace is set, mapping windows not on the
     current workspace (e.g., via restarting ctwm, or creating new
     windows with the desktop set via EWMH properties) could segfault.
     Reported by Sean McAllister.
 -   Fix some edge cases where we'd fight other apps' focus handling.
     When an application moved focus itself to an unrelated (in X terms)
     window, our processing would often race and re-move the focus to the
     root ourselves.  This was visible with e.g. sub-windows in Firefox
     for context menu and urlbar dropdown, which would flash on and then
 -   When creating a new transient window of an existing full-screen
     window, the OTP stacking may cause it to be stuck below the main
     window due to the special handling of full-screen focused windows in
     EWMH. It should now be forced to the top.
 -   Building ctwm since 4.0.0 in certain locales could misorder
     functions in the lookup table, leading to troubles parsing the
     config file. You'd get some loud "INTERNAL ERROR" lines from ctwm
     when running it if this were the case. Now fixed. Reported by
     Richard Levitte.
