Actually, I was thinking about Bruno ;-)

I just found this message on the wm-devel list:
"64bit bug in WindowMaker"

Vladimir Nadvornik from Suse had submitted a patch to fix this bug back in
january. I have tested it on my amd64 machine and the dialog boxes now appear
correctly on the screen.

IMHO, this should be included in the windowmaker port before 5.4-RELEASE.
