What I was wondering is when it would be incorporated into a Potato package?
I want to try to keep everything on my Linux box as .deb's.  I was willing
to wait until the maintainer had updated Wmaker package with the patch.
However, it's been a month now, and I'm wondering if release of updates
and/or fixes is usually this slow, and I should just compile it myself?
