I use woody and upgraded to X4. The upgrade was painless and the

Is this normal behaviour, or perhaps a configuration error?
I don't know if this applies to your setup, but last week, I had a problem

The problem turned out to be that helix-gnome was using enlightenment as
it's window manager instead of sawfish. Setting it back to sawfish fixed
