It would be nice if the version could be bumped up to latest commit on the github:

-pkgver=0.95.9.r0.gf9bc310f +pkgver=0.95.9.r25.g82ab2d2d

This commit fixes a bug that can cause WindowMaker to lock up when the menu is being navigated close to the screen edge.

I do not encounter the problem you describe. Perhaps you have a variable set in your shell environment that is messing things up?

There is a bug in the package. As it is,it is crippled. WPref is being built into /usr/Local instead of /usr/local > I tried to fix the Makefile but when I makepkg it just blow away my file. The fix needs to be make uptstream. My guess is that the error is in the m4 files. I seem to think I can remember this bug existing in the source code a few years ago. Ruben
