Hamm is "unstable". Whenever, after you install somethign from hamm,
no smoke comes out of your computer, you should say to yourselve
"whow, lucky me: no smoke!". Having said that, I'm running 
unstable too (everythign I run comes from unstable).

Whow, lucky you: no smoke :).

But, yes, I'd be somewhat annoyed too.

The config file it installed was /etc/X11/fvwm95/system.fvwm95rc-menu.
The file you edited must have been /etc/X11/fvwm95/system.fvwm2rc95
(note the 2 and the 95 and rc flopped).

Are you sure /etc/X11/fvwm95/system.fvwm2rc95 was removed?
I think not.

I was thinking of putting a quote from RMS in my signature too.
