Package: wmaker
Version: 0.95.8-3
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Some applications don't render a window at all, and others only as a 
sliver on WindowMaker. They work on fluxbox, indeed, you can change
the window manager while they are running, and suddenly the window 
becomes visible. Meanwhile application is running, as witnessed by 
the sound they're playing.

Some games on proton, such as "Rome: Total War" do have the problem,
but most importantly, virtualbox has it too.

The following are screenshots of a virtualbox-window (not the 
control panel-thingie of virtualbox, that always works, but the
window of a virtual machine)

That's all of it. And this is the SAME window on fluxbox (upper part only):
