I recently installed fvwm (i.e. /usr/ports/x11-wm/fvwm) under FreeBSD
release 9.0 and noticed some problems.  Fvwm consumes all available cpu
time.  The GoodStuff and FvwmWinList modules don't work.  Otherwise it
seems to work ok.  Has anyone noticed similar behavior?  (Is there a fix?)

The fvwm port does not seem to have changed since FreeBSD release 8.1
when it was still working correctly.
