This was exactly what I needed to see. It looks like both portable clx
(sbcl) and new-clx (clisp) have buggy implementations of wm-class. It
looks like Mathematica was setting only one of the wm-class values and
not putting an ascii char 0 at the end, which was breaking wm-class,
which expected 2 values with 0s after them.

I've added workarounds in stumpwm for both clisp and sbcl and have
sent them upstream.

Please let me know if mathematica now runs!
