Subject: default FvwmPager: no way to disable or change
Mime-Version: 1.0 (generated by tm-edit 7.108)
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII

Package: fvwm2
Version: 2.1.10-1
Severity: wishlist

(Applies to earlier versions, too.)

The end of system.fvwm2rc contains the lines

    # Now start pager
    Module FvwmPager 0 0

after the user's post.hook.  Thus,

1) the user can't automatically disable the pager (by killing it in
   post.hook), and
2) this hardcoded pager starts even if the user has already started a
   pager in one of the user's hook files, resulting in two pagers.

I suggest using the None conditional so that a default pager is
started only if no pager has been started by a hook (e.g., something
like "None [FvwmPager] Module Fvwm 0 0").

And I suggest moving the pager line before post.hook so that users who
don't want any pager can destroy it in their post.hook.
