Haven't seen mine in months. I think it's broken for a year or two now
anyways. There's only a single tile shown despite it should be
repeated. But I don't care as only see it very occassionally.

Are you crazy? Nobody wants that! That's horribly inefficient! No nicely
aligned windows either!

Unfortunately no more. I still have awesome on hold on 3.4.15-1
because 3.5.x is incompatible with the no more updated awesome-extra
package. And without awesome-extra, awesome is far less awesome... :-(
So I wonder if I should switch to i3 which is properly maintained and
seems to have all the features I need since 4.x...

didn't have that annoying lua-drawback.
