I noticed other bugs in it too, such as various config statements no longer being recognised yet the strings exist in the source and the binary. I haven't looked at it closely yet but I suspect a serious yet small bug in pointer arithmetic, it's doing strange things. The more I look at it, it looks much less likely that that this release will ever be committed to the ports tree. I'm hoping that 2.5.18 will fix these bugs.

Anyhow, for those who are gluttons for punishment, you can get 2.5.17 from http://komquats.com/ports/fvwm2-devel-2.5.17.tar.bz2. The files will not be available this weekend as my network will be down much of the weekend and possibly even parts of next week.
