Package: clfswm
Version: 20111015.git51b0a02-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
Trying to use a hotkey manager - keylaunch, sxfkd, xbindkeys, you name it.
In my ~/.xinitrc I have something like
keylaunch &

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
Commenting out the line that starts keylaunch/... makes clfswm work as expected

   * What was the outcome of this action?
clfswm believes that another window manager is running and it exits.
Notice that this only happens if keylaunch/... is started before clfswm;
it's ok to run them afterwards

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
Trying clfswm AND keeping a few keybindings I like without duplicating
them in its config file :)
