        This was reported by a Debian user. I have managed to
 reproduce it (indeed, for me it happens even without adding the
 explicit Wait to my regular .fvwm2rc).
 I keep getting segmentation faults from fvwm, and I figured out a way
 to reproduce them consitently.

 It seems that fwm segfaults when the control key is pressed while the
 wm is waiting.

 Here is how to reproduce it. Use the following fvwm2rc:

   DestroyFunc InitFunction
   AddToFunc InitFunction
   + "I" Wait foo

 Then, while fvwm is waiting for something which is not going to
 happen, press the control key. It's a guaranteed segmentation on my

        It does not appear under gdb, or while stracing (at least,
        under strace, things just hung, there were no crashes -- but
        it was not normal behaviour)

It may be bad manners to talk with your mouth full, but it isn't too
good either if you speak when your head is empty.
