The versions of GNUstep you are using are rather outdated. It surely
would be worthwhile to bring them up to date.

What I don't understand is how GNUstep comes into play in your problem.
Is NightView a GNUstep application? If not, than it is rather a
WindowMaker problem, which should be reported on a Window Maker mailing
list.
