I have discovered that my problem stems
from not having an existing ~/GNUstep/.GNUstepDefaults.
I had compiled and installed the snapshots as root and not
used WindowMaker as root. The official releases of GNUstep
seem to handle creating this file but the snapshots do not at
least from 5/17 on. This does not seem to shed any light
though on the problem Chris has.
