My guess is that Scwm is not restarting, but that it is crashing.  The
getting-shorter problem is fixed now, I believe.

It'd be great if you could attach a gdb to the running Scwm before
executing the line that makes scwm "restart", above, and send be the
output of executing the "backtrace" command in that gdb.  I.e., do:

%  ps aux | grep scwm  # figure out the pid of SCWM
% gdb /usr/src/scwm
gdb> attach 45923 # or whatever the pid was

# now do 
% LANG=zh_CN.GB2312 gedit
# from an xterm, should cause Scwm to stop and gdb prompt to reappear, do:

gdb> backtrace

And mail me that output.
