Re: Sawfish - keybinding funny.

I noticed this also with Sarge. Looks like Sawfish is being moved to the
GNOME 2 version, which in my experience has always sucked tremendously.
Somehow, they took a nice, simple window manager that had just the right
options, reduced the number of options, removed the config tool, and
yet still left it working worse than before.

Solution: Use Metacity.
