Bug#591317: wdm breaks with wmalloc assertion error

Package: wdm
Version: 1.28-3
Severity: normal

When starting wdm the normal way, the cross cursor from X changes to
an arrow, and then the startup process breaks off.

I tested this then further in the following way. I started up a
separate X server, then did 'export DISPLAY=:0' in another terminal and
executed 'wdm -nodaemon'. After some time I get the following message

wdm: /tmp/buildd/wmaker-0.92.0/WINGs/memory.c:83: wmalloc: Assertion `size > 0' failed.
