The problem you're experiencing in Gorm while creating matrices is due to WindowMaker stealing the left Alt key for moving Windows.   AFAIK this can be reconfigured in WindowMaker's config tool.

What I normally have to do is Right-Alt+Shift+Drag to create a matrix.  Let me know if that works for you.

this is a strange one. According to the GWorkspace guide,
ctrl+doubleclick on a folder (in that "folder -> folder -> file" view)
is supposed to open that folder in a new window, which it doesn't.
Alt-dragging to copy a file also doesn't work, whereas ctrl-dragging
to link one does. In Gorm, pressing alt (or alt-shift) and dragging
the handle of an object is supposed to create a matrix of them.
However, it looks like the alt-key is silently ignored and the object
is just resized as usual. What does work is ctrl-dragging an object to
the instantiated-objects-panel to set connections. So, uh, am I doing
something wrong or is this a bug?

On a sidenote: AppKit/NSResponder.h tells me that
'deleteWordBackward:' is implemented, but the source and a beeping
keybinding say otherwise. What gives?

FreeBSD 6.0, Xorg 6.9.0, gnustep-1.11.2_1, gnustep-back-0.10.2 (using
the libart backend, doesn't work with back-xlib either),
gnustep-base-1.11.2_1, gnustep-gui-0.10.2_2, gnustep-make-1.11.2_1,
WindowMaker 0.92 (tested it with twm, same symptoms)

Key config:
NSGlobalDomain GSFirstCommandKey Alt_L
NSGlobalDomain GSSecondCommandKey Alt_R
NSGlobalDomain GSFirstControlKey Control_L
NSGlobalDomain GSSecondControlKey Control_R
NSGlobalDomain GSFirstAlternateKey Meta_L
NSGlobalDomain GSSecondAlternateKey Meta_R
