The strangest thing happened to me. I use Window maker for Window manager. It has given be the most stable performance by not crashing in the last 4 years.

Yesterday, I thought of trying out UPP. . I installed the deb from download section. I opened a example and hit the compile button. Windowmaker simply started restarting over and over again. ( It can fortunately restart itself on crashing and continue to manage existing windows).

THe wierder thing is Theide kept working. Though the Window manager was reloading over and over, I could still press File>Quit in Theide with no problem. and once it quit, everything came back to a sane state. This happens everytime I hit the compile button. I havent tried anything else in Theide. This happens for any example I choose.

upp is EWMH compliant. Legacy window manager hints are not generally implemented. More entrenched toolkits implement both, and I think upp should too, but I'm afraid EWMH-compliant WM is a requirement at this point. It may be only a page of trivial code to add for this legacy, but someone needs to get around to do it.

You may still have hit a bug, but we needed debug output (stack trace) to know where to look. Your hardware probably has nothing to do with it.

I definitely think that TheIDE is doing some strange things while compiling. I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 with Compiz and while I compile something every 10 seconds or so the titlebar of TheIDE flashes blue. It really doesn't look normal, but more like a display error. I haven't seen this effect with other programs that I use so I think it's U++ problem.
