I have no idea what happens when WindowMaker starts an application from
the doc, but most likely it wont use [NSWorkspace openFile:] for this.
Remember that WindowMaker is no real GNUstep application, so it wont be
able to use GNUstep functionality. It would be different for GWorkspace.

Best you watch the command that gets executed by WindowMaker, when
trying to start the application (for example using ps).
